Last Friday I volunteered at the USO in the Richmond Airport. My work occasionally provides us with volunteer opportunities so along with Katie I signed up for the morning shift.
The USO provides a lounge area at the airport for members of the military to visit while they are on layovers from traveling. In the lounge are leather recliners, couches, computers, televisions and a fully-stocked kitchen for their use.
As soon as I heard about the opportunity I knew I would enjoy it. Our duties included making food and stocking supplies/sorting donations. We spent the better part of the morning chatting with other volunteers about the organization and I was shocked to hear it is almost funded 100% by donations!
