For nearly 75 years, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities. As a congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to support its activities, and is powered by a family of volunteers to accomplish their mission of connection.
Every summer, the USO hosts “Operation Back to School” a fun one-day program for military children ages 5 – 12. The kids participate in activities that incorporate core subjects such as reading, math, science, history, art and athletics. To top it off, everyone receives a backpack stuffed with new school supplies. With our corporate USO partnership, Operation Back to School is an Emergent sponsored event as part of our eGIVE program.
The USO is truly an amazing organization and will continue to strengthen America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. At Emergent, we will continue to partner with organizations committed to enhancing the health and well-being of active military, veterans, first responders and their families.
