Boots On The Ground Collection Drive To Support Our Homeless and At-Risk Veterans

  • Giant Food Store 948 Bay Ridge Road Annapolis, MD, 21403 United States (map)

For the past 2 years, USASOA has partnered with Giant Foods to hold a monthly BOOTS ON THE GROUND campaign in front of their stores during the warmer months. Upon entering the store, our volunteers hand their customers a card with a list of the items most needed by our wounded at Walter Reed Military Hospital and for our at-risk and homeless veterans. We ask them to please consider making a purchase of one or several of the items and to drop them off at our table in front of the store as they leave.
