Back to School Drive

The USO supports our military children as they head back to the classroom by collecting school supplies and distributing them at military installations. Community partners and local citizens donate supplies to various drop-off points around the area while the USO rallies local businesses to help purchase the remaining requested items. The drive culminates with Back to School Fairs full of educational resources, food and camaraderie.
