Raise funds for troops by hosting BBQ

Posted: Updated:

Millions of families across the country will fire up their grills today as the unofficial kick off to barbecue season. Now, you can turn your summer cook-out into a fundraiser for our troops

The USO is launching a grassroots campaign that asks you to throw a backyard barbecue to support military families. It started Memorial Day and runs through Labor Day and it's just as easy as firing up your grill and inviting some friends over.

"All summer long here go to bbqforthetroops.org and find out how you can host a BBQ fundraiser in your neighborhood and show Americans troops how much you appreciate their service and sacrifice." USO President Sloan Gibson.

"It's something that anybody can do, anybody can get on the website again we're kicking it off this weekend but its all summer long. You can do it on any weekend and it's always appreciated," masterchef and caterer, Jennifer Behm said.

Learn more about the campaign by visiting bbqforthetroops.org.
