WASHINGTON -- The USO of Metropolitan Washington and WUSA9 are teaming up to raise money to thank our military families this holiday season.
DONATE HERE: Turkeys for Troops
There are thousands of active-duty military personnel in the D.C. Metropolitan area. We'd like to thank them by providing Thanksgiving and Christmas 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 long time. Be a part of creating special holiday memories for them and their families and show your support by thanking them with a holiday meal.

The holiday baskets will contain canned goods, stuffing and pie makings, corn bread mix and a gift card for a fresh turkey or ham. USO-Metro is working directly with military leaders to identify families in the region that need our help the most.
The suggested donation is $50.00 to cover the cost of one food basket, which will feed a family of six.
On behalf of the USO-Metro and our soldiers, sailors and airmen, thank you in advance for participating in Turkeys for Troops.
