Summer’s winding down, which means football season kicks off and the race to the World Series begins. So I wanted to make sure you had a jersey ready to show your support for America’s favorite team – our courageous troops.
Make a donation to the USO’s Support Our Troops: Home or Away campaign by August 31 and you’ll receive your special jersey-style t-shirt. It’s a great way to show the world you support our troops, while making a direct and immediate impact in the lives of our brave men and women in uniform. And when you attend a game, or even root from home, wear your jersey t-shirt to remind your friends of our brave troops.
As you know, the USO provides comfort, support and recreation to our troops and their families everywhere. From a phone call home to a hot meal in the winter at a forward operating base to Sesame Street tours and even employment opportunities for our wounded warriors, the USO is there whenever our troops need us.
But none of this work would be possible without the support of people like you. So for the USO and for our troops, I hope you will get involved in our Support Our Troops: Home or Away campaign. And remember, when you do make your donation today, we’ll send you a jersey-style t-shirt so you can wear your support proudly.
By joining in this campaign, you can be part of a special community of Americans who stand together and let our troops know we will always support them – home or away. I hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to continue your support and get your special jersey-style t-shirt. - Kelli Seely, USO Chief Development Officer
