Bob Hope USO provides USO services, programming and outreach at six centers and dozens of military installations across 51,000 square miles in Southern and Central California to over 250,000 members of the military and their families each year. In 2017, nearly 200 volunteers at the Bob Hope USO at Ontario Airport, one of the busiest airports in Southern California, served over 27,000 troops and their families in Riverside, San Bernardino and Kern County. In 2018, we expanded our USO programming and services with our opening of the new Bob Hope USO at March ARB in early 2018 and we continue to grow our outreach efforts at local military bases Edwards AFB, Ft. Irwin, MCLB Barstow, and Naval Surface Warfare Center Corona with all of our active duty and reservist service members and their families living in the area. Thus far we have already served over 54,000 service members in the first three quarters alone, doubling our 2017 numbers!

From the moment a service member walks into Bob Hope USO they are greeted with a friendly face and a warm environment. The Bob Hope USO at Ontario offers an exclusive array of facilities and services that include complimentary meals, snacks and beverages, recreation areas, luggage storage, big screen TVs, free WiFi, a computer center and nap room. The Bob Hope USO at Ontario also provides family support programs and events throughout the year, such as meals for thousands of troops and military family members at homecomings and deployments at local bases and military hospitals, Family Days and Bob Hope USO community outreach at family-themed events.

Bob Hope USO does not receive any federal funding to carry out our mission. Your contribution is an opportunity to continue to reinforce your commitment to strengthen families and enhance the lives of the people who utilize the Bob Hope USO at Ontario, 365 days a year.

With your donation, Bob Hope USO efforts in the Inland Empire area will:

  • Increase number of troops and families served annually at the Bob Hope USO of Ontario and March ARB.
  • Provide ongoing financial support for operational and programmatic expenses such as food for the troops, maintenance of center amenities, and expansion of additional outreach efforts to local military installations.
  • Provide continued expansion of programmatic outreach to the Inland Empire military community, particularly in its support of military families to help keep service members connected to family, home, and country.
Thank you for supporting our very important mission!
