WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA9) --The USO of Metropolitan WashingtonandWUSA9are teaming up to raise money to thank our military families this holiday season.

There are 500,000 active-duty military personnel in the DC Metropolitan area. We'd like to thank them by providing holiday food baskets. It's part of a program called Turkeys for Troops.

For many of our military members this will be the first holiday meal they've had with their families in a very long time. Be a part of creating special holiday moments for them and their families and show your support by thanking them with a holiday meal.

Each food basket feeds six people. The cost for each basket is $50.

Here's how you can get involved: go to the Metropolitan Washington USO website and donate whatever amount of money you can afford.

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 Turkeys for Troops.
