Veteran’s Day is right around the corner. With so many veterans coming back from recent wars, the day has a little more meaning. Of course, we want to honor all our veterans, but when your friend or your cousin or your coworker is a veteran of a recent war, it hits closer to home. It leaves us wondering what we can do to help our vets. There are so many organizations out there that it’s hard to know where to start or know where to give or how to give it. I’ve got an easy way you can help out this Veteran’s Day. Get yourself one of these.
In honor of Veteran’s, Baskin-Robbins will donate 11 cents from every ice cream scoop sold on Veterans Day to the USO in honor of all service members, veterans and their families. Got that? You get ice cream and the USO gets a donation. While you are there, order a camouflage waffle cone, which are decorated green, brown, and tan, to honor the military community. You can also text THANKYOU to 50555 and send a message to our servicemen and women or visit the Baskin-Robbins website to send a message of thanks.
USO’s are commonly located in airports and are accessible to military, veterans, and their families. They are also located on bases overseas, providing everything from phones and computer usage to Thanksgiving meals. The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. For nearly 75 years, the USO, a private, nonprofit organization, has served the men and women in the U.S. military and their families throughout their service – from the moment they join, through their deployments and as they transition back to their communities.
Baskin-Robbins is also located on many military bases overseas. We frequented it a lot when we were stationed in Okinawa. Baskin-Robbins is the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops with more than 7,400 retail shops in nearly 50 countries, including nearly 2,500 shops in the United States.
