XLA Lends-A-Hand Delivers 250 Care Packages to the Troops
XLA employees participated in a Pack 4 Troops event on Friday, July 29th. XLA employees were able to put together 250 care packages filled with some of the most requested treats for the troops. The USO was quickly able to secure a destination for these care packages to our troops stationed in Ft. Bliss, Texas. Employees and their children arrived at 9am anxious to put together care packages and give back to the men and women who do so much for our country. It was an outstanding company event which allowed XLA employees from different agencies throughout the D.C. Metro Area to come together at the corporate office in Tysons, VA for a great cause. The morning was full of fun and laughter and employees joined together afterwards for pizza and a social hour. XLA would like to recognize the many hands that made this possible.

The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.
For nearly 75 years, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, during their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.
The USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to support its activities, and is powered by a family of volunteers to accomplish our mission of connection. Please visit their website at www.uso.org to find out more ways to support.
