USO Northwest's Helping Hands Program was developed to provide grant awards to assist military units to afford much deserved recreational, entertainment and morale building activities for the service members and their families stationed in the Pacific Northwest. The USONW has assisted with numerous "Welcome Home" and "Deployment" events, command functions, and other camaraderie building events. In 2013, over 89,000 individuals were served. Where traditional funding sources are not available, or insufficient to meet the programs' needs, the USONW offers the Helping Hands Program.
This program is funded partially by those who donate through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). The USO Northwest CFC number is 15348.
