How You Can Be a Force Behind the Forces
Donate your birthday to service members in our community! In lieu of gifts, start a fundraising drive or other collection to show your support!
Every little bit helps! Donate funds, or host a collection drive of snacks or other goods for one of our USO centers.
When it comes to supporting our service members, the sky is the limit! There are many ways that you can raise awareness of the USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia (USOHRCV) and benefit our men and women in uniform.
Consider celebrating your birthday, graduation, or any other occasion with the USOHRCV! Instead of gifts, invite your family and friends to give a donation in support of service members and their families. Get started with your fundraiser here. You’ll be able to share your fundraiser to any social media platform or through email.
Other simple fundraising efforts include hosting a “Jeans for GIs” day at your work, charging a late fee when a person is late to a meeting, or hosting a car wash and asking the location to match what you raise. For a list of fundraising ideas, check out our Host a FUNdraiser page! Once you have your idea and event planned, don’t forget to let us know so we can support your event if needed!
