It’s a simple proposition to you from one of the USO’s biggest donors. And it expires at midnight.
The BNSF Railway Foundation is offering to match any cash gift made by USO donors up to a total of $250,000. That means anything from the minimum gift of $5 and up will be doubled, with the money going toward USO programs and services that help American troops around the world.
This isn’t the first time BNSF Railway Foundation has stepped up for America’s troops. On July 24, they made a first-of-its-kind pledge to support USO Warrior and Family Care employment programs. Their pledge commits $3 million over the next three years to fund a portion USO programs designed to assist transitioning troops – including those who are wounded, ill or injured – as they re-enter the civilian workforce.
Check out the video from this USO/Hire Heroes USA Career Opportunity Day where BNSF representatives were on hand to talk about their commitment.
