It's Military Appreciation Month! Can we count on your support?
The USO lifts the spirits of our troops and their families, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We are a private, non-profit, non-governmental organization that relies on the generosity of our volunteers and donors. Join Operation USO Houston this month by pledging a donation or engaging your community group in a fun and patriotic fundraising activity, such as a barbecue, lemonade stand, congregational pass-the-plate, or office coin collection.
In Houston, the USO provides a touch of home to nearly 44,000 troops and military families who annually pass through our USO Centers at Bush Intercontinental and Hobby Airports, as well as offers morale-boosting and family-strengthening programs to the 8,000 Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen and their families who are based in Greater Houston and along the upper Texas Gulf Coast.
You can be sure that your donation will be used effectively. The USO has earned the status as a Charity Navigator 4-Star Charity, a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity, and a GuideStar.org Valued Partner. Ninety percent (90%) of USO resources are spent on program-related activities and all donations are tax deductible.
