Nearly eleven percent of U.S. military active duty forces call North Carolina home. With seven major military installations, North Carolina has the fourth largest demographic of active and reserve duty components in the country, presenting a growing need for dedicated services to those serving and their families. The USO of NC serves nearly 600,000 service members and their families each year with critical programs and services strengthening service members by connecting them to family, home and country.
“We are proud to be part of the USO of North Carolina’s commitment to supporting military servicemen and women in the state of North Carolina,” said Ken Baer, a Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee in Pinehurst and Fayetteville. “As both residents and business owners in eastern North Carolina, we are proud to give back to the people in our community who are serving our nation at home and abroad.”
“The work of the USO of NC would not be possible without the generous support from our partners, like Dunkin’ Donuts,” said Renee Lane, USO of North Carolina Sandhills Area director. “Each of our individual programs go a long way in assisting, supporting and comforting serving members of the military and this donation will allow us to serve even more families this year.”
