In honor of Military Appreciation Month, Stater Bros. Charities and Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling are partnering for the Give Back program to support local service members and their families. From May 4th through May 31st, 2022, Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling will donate $0.25 for each participating Coke product purchased* to Bob Hope USO. Reyes Coca-Cola Bottling is committed to donating up to $15,000 and Stater Bros. Charities will match every dollar for a combined total donation of $30,000. Together, we can help Bob Hope USO keep service members connected to their families and communities.

What is Bob Hope USO?

Bob Hope USO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is Southern California’s branch of the USO, stretching from San Luis Obispo to the San Diego County Line. The USO provides services, programming, and outreach at seven centers and dozens of military installations across 51K square miles in Southern and Central California. Their mission is to strengthen service members by keeping them connected to their families and communities throughout their entire service period. From the time they join, throughout their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.

About USO Centers and Programs

Bob Hope USO centers serve as an extension of our service member’s family, it’s a place that feels like home when they’re away from home. The centers provide service members access to complimentary meals, Wi-Fi connectivity, an area of rest during extended layovers, and where they’re greeted upon return from overseas. The USO also has a variety of morale-boosting programs focused on connection, family building, entertainment, wellness, and discharge transitioning.
