As our Arizona-based service members return from deployment, many single or unaccompanied service members return to an empty room in the barracks or base dormitories, with their family and friends unable to be there. In an effort to provide these heroes with a better welcome home, USO Arizona began working with corporate donors to create Rack Sacks. Each cinch sack contains shower shoes, a towel, wash cloth, toiletry items, and a note to welcome the service member home. Distributed by the military personnel checking the service members into the barracks, these offer a small token of our gratitude for their service and fresh items to make their new place feel a bit more like home.
To inquire about this or other programs, please contact USO Arizona staff at USOArizona@uso.org.
