Verizon Wireless Collects Basic Supplies For South Carolina USO

GREENVILLE, S.C., July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless teams up with South Carolina USO to collect non-perishable food and essential items to provide support and encouragement to the service men and women stationed or traveling through the Palmetto State. The special collection starts July 22 and requested items can be dropped off until August 30 at any Verizon Wireless store in South Carolina.

South Carolina USO provides a bridge to home for service men and women traveling through Columbia Metropolitan Airport and those stationed at Fort Jackson, Fort Gordon, Shaw Air Force Base, 81st Regional Support Command and McEntire Joint National Guard Base. The following items are needed to support these men and women, and all donations made to the special collection are tax deductible and stay in South Carolina.

Snack items needed (all food items must be prepackaged and individually wrapped):
  • Beef jerky, granola and power bars
  • Peanuts and cashews
  • Rice crispy treats
  • Sunflower seeds

Personal hygiene items needed:
  • Individual packs of Kleenex
  • 3 ounce bottles of sunscreen and hand sanitizer
  • Lip balm
  • Alcohol wipes
  • Small packs of Clorox and baby wipes
  • Pouches of laundry detergent
  • International calling cards

According to Joanie Thresher, Director of the South Carolina USO, "Donating to this special collection is an easy way for the community to show support and appreciation to troops who make incredible sacrifices to serve and protect our country. I am very appreciative that Verizon Wireless shares our vision and is allowing over 35 stores across SC to serve as collection points for these essential supplies since our inventory is very low."

The USO lifts the spirits of America's troops and their families millions of times each year at hundreds of places worldwide by providing a touch of home through centers at airports and military bases, top quality entertainment and innovative programs and services. The USO also provides critical support to those who need it most, including troops and their families, wounded warriors and the families of the fallen.
