ATLANTA CHAPTER CHAPTER - Dec 20, 2021

Volunteers Support Operation Holiday Block Leave

More than twenty people came out to volunteer for the chapter's annual support of Operation Holiday Block Leave at Hartfield-Jackson Airport. This was a 24-hour period where approximately 2,000 troops came through the United Service Organizations (USO) as they headed home for the holidays. In anticipation of this event, the chapter met earlier in the month and assembled 2,000 goodie bags with an assortment of snacks to help during travels. The chapter has supported the USO for this event for more than 15 years and judging by the turn out, it remains very popular with the members!
