During these challenging times the USO has continued working hard to provide connection and support to military members and their families – and of course some treats to make the summers days extra special!
In July we were so glad to return to our home post at CG Base Boston with several days of a drink, snack and “Coffee for the Coast Guard” Pop Up. Special thanks to our friends at Hanscom Federal Credit Union who sponsored the event.
Operation: Pizza Pickup took place at Hanscom Air Force Base thanks to a generous donation of over 500 frozen pizzas from Cape Cod Cafe. Together with the Hanscom Top 3 Council we were able to distribute pizzas to over 200 military families to take home for their very own pizza night!
August then found us in Rhode Island with the 115th Police Company helping out scooping perhaps the sweetest treat of all — ice cream!
We’re so pleased to have been able to safely offer these celebrations throughout this unique and challenging summer. It’s been such a pleasure being back on the road and reconnecting with our wonderful community of military families!
