Donate to Feed the Troops!

Our nation's men and women of the military forces have defended our country, insured our freedom, and upheld the beliefs and principles that this great nation was built on. Our complimentary sandwiches, snacks and beverages may seem like small comforts, but to our grateful military personnel and their dependent family members, visiting the USO is there home away from home. We operate airport centers at LAX, Ontario International Airport, Orange County at John Wayne Airport and Palm Springs International Airport. that provide daily and ongoing support to thousands of members of the military each month. Our USO programming and outreach services are a vital element to our service to the community.

Each year, we provide direct service to over 100,000 military members, their families and are excited to partner with our community to impact the lives of the individuals who are so selflessly serving our country.

Our key outreach programs for 2017 include:

58th Annual Armed Forces Day Observance

Bob Hope USO is a key partner in the longest-running Department of Defense sanctioned parade in the nation on May 19-21, 2017, in the city of Torrance. The annual event anticipates an attendance of more than 60,000 people.

Bob Hope USO will provide thousands of free meals and refreshments to our service members and uniformed law enforcement in special breakfast, lunch and dinner service during the celebration. This is part of its mission to strengthen America's military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.

Fleet Week

Bob Hope USO is a major partner for LA Fleet Week 2017, a free public event celebrating our U.S. Armed Forces that will be held September 1-4 at the Port of Los Angeles. The event welcomes active military ships and personnel to the LA Waterfront, and features public ship tours, military equipment demonstrations, live entertainment, educational activities and more. We help organize the entertainment and concerts on the deck of the USS Iowa, prepare and serve meals for Sailors & Marines at Bob Hope USO Satellite Center while also running the Satellite Center.
