Be a Community Elf this Holiday Season!
Program Information: Make holiday wishes come true for military children this holiday season through Project USO Elf! Project USO Elf is a signature USO-Metro program where companies, organizations, families, and the community at-large register to "sponsor" a military child by selecting and providing gifts from an established wish list!
How it Works: Wish List Donors ("Elves") are provided with the military child's first name, age, gender and his/her holiday wish list. No personal information is disclosed about the sponsored military child. Upon receiving the wish list, donors have the opportunity to shop for the child's items! The estimated cost for each child is $50.00. Each child will receive a minimum of 2 gifts and/or a gift card.
**All donors registering after October 27, 2015 are not guaranteed to receive children's wish lists before the Thanksgiving holiday.**
After registering, you will receive an email confirmation that will have only one ticket attached. This does not reflect the number of children you "sponsored;" rather, it is to confirm that you registered to support this holiday program. We thank you in advance for participating!
Donors who register by October 27th will begin receiving wish lists November 11, 2015. We will do our best to get your list to you as quickly as possible.
If you register on or after October 28th, it is not guaranteed you will receive the wish list(s) before the Thanksgiving holiday.
