About the Cause:
USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore is a nonprofit 501c(3) organization dedicated to serving those who serve and their families in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia. Nine locations and a “deployable” Mobile USO provide services to the nearly 300,000 military members and their families living in the region and the 150,000 who travel through our local airports.
With the help of thousands of devoted volunteers, USO-Metro provides programs and services for active duty-troops and their families at area military hospitals, five USO centers, four USO airport lounges and a Mobile USO. Signature programs and services include holiday programs like Turkeys for Troops and Project USO Elf, career transition programs, and caring for our wounded, ill and injured troops and their caregivers.
