GSCCC is collecting health care items to be included in USO care packages for our military members, and you can earn a patch for helping out! We ask that all donated items must be new.

Hold a troop and/or service unit collection from January 2 to March 1. (You can find posters to download for this purpose on our Marketing Resources page, or make your own!)

If you choose to create cards of thanks to our military, you may include them with your donation.

Bring donated items to A Place for Girls, 912 Cedar Road, Chesapeake or the Sunshine Quilt Corner, 896 J. Clyde Morris Blvd, Newport News. (Donations will be packed by USO volunteers.)

Community service patches will be available for purchase in the GSCCC Shop after March 1, 2024 but you must complete the participation form: https://forms.gle/qhzj9BKMNREDa2Ju9
