Sunday, May 1, Harris Teeter will launch its fifth annual Support Our Troops donation card campaign. This campaign, which benefits the USO, helps support active duty military and their families, as well as wounded service members, those transitioning back to civilian life, and families of the fallen.
During the month of May, Harris Teeter shoppers and associates will be invited to make $1, $3 or $5 donations to Support Our Troops at checkout, or during their expresslane online order. The company gives 100 percent of these donations directly to the USO to help connect America’s service members and their families to their family, home and country throughout their journey in the military. The USO acts as an extended family for our nation’s military by delivering valuable programs, morale-boosting services, engaging entertainment and a touch of home through more than 180 locations worldwide.
“This Military Appreciation Month, we are thrilled Harris Teeter associates and shoppers will be able to show our men and women in uniform that we appreciate the sacrifices they make for our country," said Michael Hoar, USO Vice President of Corporate Alliances. "Partnerships like this are paramount for the USO to support our nation's military, as we have for the past 75 years.”
“Harris Teeter is proud to partner with the USO to show support of our brave servicemen and women, as well as their families,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “We are thankful for the involvement of our valued associates and loyal shoppers who continuously support the good works of the USO.”
In 2015, the Support Our Troops campaign raised over $759,000 to benefit our service men and women; bringing the total donated to more than $2.8 million since 2012.
