USO-Metro 2021 Holiday Programs

Each holiday season, USO-Metro has the privilege of delivering warmth and festivity to our troops and their families on behalf of the American people. This goodness is donated, packed and delivered with love and gratitude. It comes in the form of food to fill a table surrounded by family and friends, hand-picked gifts for tiny hands to open and spaces to help bridge the distance.

Each year, USO-Metro offers a special holiday event for active duty E1 through E6 military families! Trees for Heroes is a special day for military families to experience one of the timeless traditions of the holiday season at a local Christmas Tree Farm. In appreciation of your service, families can spend the day selecting a Christmas tree for their home, creating seasonal arts and crafts, snapping pictures with Santa, and enjoying holiday fellowship.
