Donations In-Kind

In addition to monetary donations, our USO centers greatly depend on the generosity of businesses, groups and individuals to support our ongoing operations. If you’d like to learn more in regards to in-kind donation drop offs or to simply find out if that center has specific needs you can assist with, please contact your nearest USO Hampton Roads and Central Virginia Center.
