This year, USO of Illinois supported 23 military unit summer parties with in-kind donations, including Gatorade, Propel, Girl Scout Cookies, Disney DVDs, Chicago sports merchandise, and Shure headphones. Unit parties also utilized USO Stateside Care Packages, which are footlockers filled with fun, family-themed recreational items and a choice of a silly bounce house or water toys!
Thank you to Wintrust for powering our USO Military Unit Family Day Programs.
