WASHINGTON -- 7-Eleven customers can support American troops and the United Service Organizations (USO) by purchasing a "Support Our Troops" wristband. For each wristband sold, $1 will be donated to the USO to fund programs and services for military service members and their families worldwide.
The camouflage-green wristbands are embossed with "Support Our Troops" on one side and "USO" on the other. They are currently rolling out to participating 7-Eleven stores nationwide and will be available exclusively at those 7-Eleven stores while supplies last.
"Americans want visible ways to show their support for the individuals serving our country," said Jim Keyes, president and CEO of 7-Eleven Inc. "They have flags at their homes, bumper stickers on their cars ... now they can wear their support on their arm. Besides providing a visible way to say thank you to our troops, the wristbands help raise much-needed funds for the USO, which has uplifted those serving in immeasurable ways both in times of war and peace."
7-Eleven is the first national retailer to offer a wristband as a way to raise money to support our troops through USO programs.
