In-Kind Donations

USO Colorado gladly receives budget relieving in-kind donations. In-kind donations can be items such as prepackaged snacks, bottles of water and sodas, toiletry items, or a supply needed for program support. These are the most commonly used items, however there are many other items we can accept. If you have another idea in mind, please email us at or

Hosting a drive for a particular item and donating such items would qualify as in-kind. USO Colorado would be pleased to provide information on how to make your drive successful.

We would be happy to email you a copy of a printable flyer if you send us a message at or
