This is the second year that Missouri-based Propper International plans to make a financial donation to the Missouri United Service Organization. During the week before Memorial Day, (May 21-May 28) they will donate a portion of all online sales to the Missouri USO. Their mission, as they describe it, is to “strengthen America’s military service by keeping them connected to family, home, and country.”
Last year, Propper donated $7,452 and this year they hope to raise at least that much again.
Propper has been supporting service men and women for over 50 years. John Negrau, VP, Marketing & eCommerce said, “Our military heritage is a perfect complement to the USO’s mission and purpose. It made sense that we should honor our fallen troops by supporting current active duty personnel.”
The USO is not a government sponsored organization. Each state branch functions independently and relies on local support. In response to the 2017 Propper donation, Christine Trotter, Development Director for USO of Missouri said “we count on companies and private individuals to help support our operations. Propper’s overwhelming generosity has been incredible.”
According to the USO national website, the organization helps 4.9 service members and their families. There are more than 200 locations world wide. You can find a local one on their Find a USO webpage.
