You Can Help "Beef Up Our Troops"

Beef jerky is one of the most requested items by American troops serving overseas. You can help by making a donation to the USO's "Operation Beef Up Our Troops" program.

Co-sponsored by the American Farm Bureau Federation, the program allows you to "join with members of the US ag community by helping to support the purchase of beef jerky for USO care packages through monetary donations," said AFBF President Bob Stallman.

You can make donations at any time by calling (800) 876-7469. You can also send a check to the address below. Checks should be made payable to the USO, and note "beef jerky" on the check memo line.
