USTA Military Outreach

March 30, 2011 04:10 PM
USTA proudly announces the Military Outreach Program. There are several programs sponsored by the USTA including Yellow Ribbon events, Wounded Warrior programs and the Adopt-A-Unit effort. 
The Adopt-A-Unit effort is designed to guide tennis organizations and players to ‘adopt’ a military unit of anywhere between 25-100 service members deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan by sending care packages of necessities.   In turn, USTA Serves, the National Charitable Foundation of the USTA, will send portable tennis equipment to the adopted unit on your behalf with instructions and educational information on tennis. The effort allows the tennis community to show support and to introduce soldiers to a recreational means for reintegrating with family, friends and community upon their return from conflict.
We are looking for CTA's or groups of several teams to adopt units and send them care packages of simple items such as hand sanitizers, socks, hard candy, toiletries, etc.  More information about this program can be found at www.usta.com/military . There is also a facebook page that can be located at http://www.facebook.com/USTAMilitaryOutreach .
