On Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, we officially begin our USO Campaign! The Campaign runs from weeks 22-26 and ends after the BBQ Battle. Just like last year, during this period, customers can donate $1, $3, $5, or larger amounts of money to the USO Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore (USO-Metro) at the point of sale.
The campaign slogan this year is, “Be the Force behind our Armed Forces!” Let’s take that slogan to heart and be the Best Neighbor we can be to our military.
With the combined effort of the USO campaign, the USO fundraiser event at Myron Mixon’s Pitmaster Barbeque, and the Barbecue Battle, we donated over $400,000 to the USO-Metro last year. This year we want to exceed that total and take one huge step forward by donating over $500,000 to the USO!
Supporting the men and women of the armed forces is a major community pillar of ours at Giant Food. Without our military, we would not have the freedoms and rights that we hold so dearly today. This campaign also serves as a competition between stores, districts, and regions to fuel efforts in getting customers to donate to this amazing organization!
Have fun, support it, and let’s make a HUGE difference as we give back to the USO-Metro!
