The Denver/Lake Norman Rotary has instituted its 5th annual Helmet Fund fundraiser for the United Services Organization (USO). The USO ( is a non-governmental organization that provides emotional support and a "taste of home" for our men and women in uniform, especially those serving abroad in forward operating bases and other areas of conflict.  Money donated to the USO is used to provide "USO2GO" care packages, "Phone Home" live phone calls and FaceTime options for personal visits with Family, support for families of the Fallen, and more.  Last year, the Club donated just over $500 for this worthy Fundraiser which is AWESOME!!  The Helmet will be available for donations at Rotary meetings every week through early December.  As we all plan for our Holidays here at home together, give thanks for remembering those serving "out there on the wall", far removed from their own homes, families and loved ones.
