DynCorp International is an annual supporter of the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore (USO-Metro) Turkeys for Troops program. The program helps feed local, junior-enlisted military families by providing them with holiday meal baskets. Each basket contains holiday meal ingredients including canned goods, stuffing and pie mixes. Each also includes a gift card for a fresh turkey or ham and will feed a family of up to six members.
The program began in 2008 when it gave baskets to approximately 500 families in response to an increase in emergency food requests. This year, the USO-Metro hopes to provide more than 1,200 baskets. The program is made possible through generous donations from corporate partners such as DI, and funds raised during an annual telethon held on Veteran’s Day. Read more →
