Helping Hands Program:
The Camp Lewis Center has become the distribution hub for our Helping Hands Program awards. This month we provided checks to 25 units for a total of $6,895. November's distributed funds supported mostly unit Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday parties. Often times units have to reserve a space before funding for the event is available and our Helping Hands Program allows them to do so.
The Salute to Military Spouses Coffee Connection & Watch Party - Camp Lewis
: Military spouses’ service to the country is vital to ensuring the readiness and morale of our nation’s troops, but they do so largely unheralded. On Nov. 14, the USO Northwest hosted a small gathering for military spouses to connect with each other while enjoying a cup of coffee. This is a great way to network, share advice, discuss local events, and meet new friends! The Salute to Military Spouses event was streamed live during the gathering.
