SouthTrust Teams Up With USO To Support Troops.
Through its Invest in America program, SouthTrust Funds will donate $10 to the USO for every new U.S. Treasury Money Market Fund or any other SouthTrust Funds investment customers make. The program will run from February 15 to April 30.
"Contributing to the USO is a direct way to show the brave men and women of our armed forces that we are with them in spirit and appreciate what they are doing to protect our freedoms," said Dick White, division president for SouthTrust's Capital Management Group. "By investing in one of our SouthTrust Funds, customers can help secure their future and let our troops know they have our full support."
One hundred percent of all donations will go to support the vital services provided by the USO, including crisis support, cyber-canteens, mobile canteens and celebrity entertainment tours. The USO is a non-profit, non-government agency.
"The USO is an integral part of our country's relationship with our service men and women. It is a treasure enabling Americans to express their gratitude, caring and support for our Armed Forces.
