On the heels of Independence Day, DynCorp International team members in Fort Worth, Texas, kept the patriotic spirit going all month by participating in a decoration contest to raise donations for the Dallas-Fort Worth USO.
USO Center at DFW Airport
The USO Center at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport recently reported a 50 percent drop in donations used for gift packets. However, the number of military members passing through the center – nearly 170,000 last year — has remained steady, so DI team members rallied to gather the needed donations.
DI employees formed teams to decorate donation boxes and collect items such as travel size snacks, single serve chips, single serve peanuts, snack crackers and trial size toiletries. Dozens of donations were collected and delivered to the USO center to replenish its inventory.
The main USO Center, available for use by troops and their families, is located at Terminal B, Gate 15, at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Center amenities include a café area, TV lounge, computers, cell phones for use, play area, Xbox area, sleeping room and a reading room. There is also a smaller lounge located at Terminal D, Gate 22.
