“Outlook Gives Back…” Meet Our Social Enterprise Partner: The USO of North Carolina
In this session, we will get to know more about the USO of North Carolina. Founded in 1941, they are the lead organization charged with supporting military servicemen and servicewomen in the state of North Carolina. Eleven percent of U.S. active-duty military forces call North Carolina home. With seven major military installations, North Carolina has the fourth-largest demographic of active- and reserve-duty components in the country.
The USO of North Carolina is an independent 501(C)(3) organization chartered by USO Arlington as a self-sustaining separate operating entity. USO of North Carolina is wholly reliant on funding from private grants, donations, corporate gifts and sponsorships, and fundraisers. It receives no direct funding from the national USO or from the government.
Join us to hear more about this incredible organization and how you can align your brand with this cause.
Option 1: A Touch of Home Kits: USO Packing EventLocation: Grand Ballroom C (Vanderbilt Wing)
Join Outlook Leadership and its spotlight charity, USO of North Carolina, in packing “A Touch of Home Kits” for military members who are being deployed. What better way to extend your reach than to provide support to our nation’s military? We will pack various snacks and personal items in bags, along with notes written by you. All participants will fold small flags that fit into the pockets of service members’ uniforms when they are in the fields and act as a constant reminder that their country is with them and that they are connected to home. This fun event requires no prior experience and will change the way you think about snacks and what flags mean to our warriors when they are away from home. Our goal is make 1,000 kits. These kits are critical elements of building morale and letting our military know how much we appreciate their sacrifice. Please join us.
