You’re probably thinking “Three ways to help troops in 90 seconds? That can’t be true.”
You got us. This should only take 87.
The USO makes life easier for our troops and their families. We also make helping out as easy as possible for folks like you. Here’s how:
1. Send a message to troops on USOmoments.org Click here. Say what you want to say, and go about your day knowing you made service members feel good about the sacrifices they make for all of us.
2. Get info on becoming a USO volunteer Want to feel really good about helping someone else? Volunteering with the USO is a feeling that’s hard to top. Check out the FAQs. If you’re still interested, go to the sign-up page or contact your local center.
3. Donate (because a little goes a long way) If you can’t give your time, but you still want to make a big impact, there’s no easier way to support a good nonprofit than to throw a few dollars its way. And with 73 years of experience, the USO knows how to put those dollars to work efficiently. For just $11, you can provide services like 70 cups of coffee to troops at a USO center or 34 phone calls home for troops downrange. That’s 34 people who can talk to their families from Afghanistan or 70 people who get a much-needed break, all because of you. Interested? Click here.
Thanks for your 87 (or 90) seconds. Have a great rest of your day.
