On Saturday March 18th, the Women of Washington (WOW) and Redskins Salute joined forces with USO-Metro for the Pack 4 Troops event at INOVA Sports Performance Center Redskins Park.
WOW and Redskins Salute members brought donations to build care packages that will be used for USO-Metro programming that support active duty and their families in the local area. Each volunteer also received a raffle ticket for a chance to win autographed merchandise and a special Pack 4 Troops t-shirt.
Current Redskins players, cornerback Bashaud Breeland and running back Rob Kelley and former Redskins player Santana Moss joined the volunteers to aid in the assembly of the care packages. The Redskins, USO-Metro and volunteers built 950 care packages for our troops!
Members also enjoyed a tour of the team facility and a special meal in the team’s dining hall from the Redskins team chef.
