WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- The Metropolitan Washington USO and 9NEWS NOW have teamed up to raise money and food donations to thank our military families this holiday season.

PHOTOS OF "TURKEYS FOR TROOPS" FAMILIES

There are 500,000 active-duty military personnel in the DC Metropolitan area. We'd like to thank all of them through this program, but we'll start with 1,400 as our first goal in"Turkey for Troops."

Each food basket feeds six people. The cost for each basket is around $50.00.

So here's how you can get involved:Go to the Metropolitan Washington USO website and donate money as soon as you can.

You can donate whatever you can afford too. If you can only give a dollar, do it!

If fifty people like you donate a dollar each, one more family can enjoy a meal this holiday season, because of you.

On behalf of the USO of Metropolitan Washington and our soldiers, sailors and airmen, thank you in advance for participating in "Turkey For Troops."
