A holiday tradition for our local chapter of the USO is in jeopardy.
Typically by now pool tables at the USO in Jacksonville are filled to overflowing with fresh, home-baked cookies for the annual cookie drop. This year, the donations are down drastically.
Volunteers make the cookie drop on Christmas day- delivering the treats for those Marines working on base.
The USO will be taking cookie donations until Friday morning when they'll start packing for distribution.
The phone number for the USO IS 910-455-3411.
