Adopt A Service Person
We are so happy that we have been able to provide our annual Adopt A Service Program to our local service members for over 30 years now! This program allows families to “adopt” single service members for a day that is usually spent with family, Thanksgiving.
This program matches single service members with host families in the Hampton Roads and Fort Lee area. The USO Dunkin’ Donuts Adopt-A-Service person program strives to provide a genuine family environment which the service members may be accustomed too. We place service members into your home for the Thanksgiving Day holiday, to enjoy a nice dinner in a family atmosphere. The day events may include: watching football games, parades, movies, outdoor activities-football, basketball, etc.
Individuals are adopted into the homes in groups of two or more or the “Buddy System”. As a host family, transportation of the service member is required from the pick up site to your home and back.
In order to participate in this program, you must register to be a host family. Contact information and home address is required during registration so that we know where service members are at for the day.
Registration for 2017 will begin on October 16th for Fort Lee and October 1st for Hampton Roads. There are a limited amount of host family slots available, so once the slots are full, you will be placed on a waiting list. All registrants after November 14th will also be placed on a waiting list.
Must be within a 50-mile radius of Fort Lee or Hampton Roads.
