Movies for the Military

As you know, our troops are in areas of the world where real entertainment is not easy to come by. Because of this, our Chapter decided to provide a little relief and started a DVD Drive to collect Movies for the Military and their families. Everyone has old DVDs lying around at home that are no longer watched; imagine the difference you can make by donating some of those old DVDs to those with none!

Our Chapter’s annual DVD Drive has been successful since 2009, which typically runs from mid-October to Veterans Day. We have found that most businesses have been very open to participating in this DVD collection and our HR partners have been very supportive and willing to assist as well. Over the years we have collected over 10,000 DVDs for the troops, and are asking everyone to assist our Chapter and consider running a collection at your place of business, or any groups you or your family may belong to for our next DVD Drive.

The USO will accept new or used DVDs, as well as those for children. They then put together and distribute baskets with not only our DVDs collected, but also other donated items for the families of those left behind.

Attached are some flyers for the USO Movies for the Military Drive. Feel free to customize them for your needs. This will allow the USO time to get the DVDs overseas in time for Christmas. After the DVDs have been collected, you can ship them directly to the USO at the address below.
