Why We Do It
Below is a letter received from a service member who had received one of our bags:
Yesterday, I traveled through the San Diego Airport. A USO Volunteer approached me with a bag from the USO and Pepperdine University Alumni Association and thanked me for my service.
Because I was rushing to get through security, I didn't have time to look inside until I was waiting at the gate. What a surprise! The snacks were great and I munched on them throughout my flight home. However, the best item included was the handmade card. The card really touched me.
Thank you, your organization, partners, and volunteers for all of the work that you are doing to support our military. Please pass on my thanks to those who contributed their efforts and money in support of service members. It helps morale to receive support like this.
On behalf of everyone who will receive these food bags this Thanksgiving, please wish the team that put them together a Happy Holiday Season!
