A project of the San Diego Pepperdine Waves and the USO San Diego



We need helping hands and we hope you can lend us yours!



Help us show our gratitude for our service members by giving financially to make this project possible. Every little bit counts.

San Diego has one of the largest concentrations of active-duty military in the free world. Over the holidays over 3,000 service members travel home for the holidays through the San Diego International Airport, some the last trip home before deploying. Many times our service members travel hungry unable to afford the airport food on their long journeys.

The Waves of Appreciation bags – or WOA bags – contain food and snacks to sustain our service members. Please join us in thanking the men and women who serve our country by donating to the WOA bag project or volunteering your time.
