USO Hawaii celebrated the Month of the Military Child with books, bears, and brunch. Children of active duty military families came to USO Schofield Barracks from all over the island. We had brunch, heard a reading of the book “Hero Dad” and everyone took home a copy of the book along with a kit to build a camo bear with a recordable message from their own Hero Dad or Hero Mom. With such an overwhelming demand for this event, our sponsor GEICO made it possible for over 100 children to attend!
Attendees also had the opportunity to learn about our partnership with the United Through Reading program, which offers a wonderful way for service members and the children they love to stay connected through reading.
