Greater Stuttgart Chapter Community Service

ASMC Community Service Opportunity

USO Volunteer Opportunities

 

  The Stuttgart USO was fo unded in 1975. Our primary focus is to provide a "Home Away From Home" to American military and their family members stationed overseas.Together with our German council we try to bring the military community into closer contact with the host nation. As a means to get the word out on USO programs, an e-newsletter is updated weekly for the Stuttgart community.

The local USO office located on the 3rd floor of building 2915 Panzer Kaserne,  offers a variety of services such as: WiFi, laptops with internet and printing capabilities, a telephone to make free calls back to the U.S., a fax machine able to send both local and Stateside faxes, television, tours, cooking classes, German language classes and much more.

This is a great opportunity for our chapter to say 'Thank You' to the troops for their dedication and sacrifice to the United States and give back to the community by volunteering your time to help the USO bring services to our troops away from home.

Wounded Warrior Ministry Center “Chaplain’s Closet”

Items Needed

 

The Wounded Warrior Ministry Center (WWMC) assists more than 750 Wounded Warriors each month by providing immediate comfort items needed during rehabilitation. 

The “Chaplain’s Closet” is a distribution room where patients can select clothing and toiletries when they are admitted.  The center also assists the Fisher House located next to the hospital.  Similar to a Ronald McDonald House, the Fisher House is a place where families of critically wounded patients can stay free of charge while visiting their loved ones.  It is also a place for outpatients to stay while receiving care.

The American Society of Military Comptrollers Greater Stuttgart Chapter is collecting items most needed for the closet.  Every month the center updates the list of items most needed.   

 

Note:  The center does not accept used items.

 

If you would like to donate items, please bring them to the EUCOM Comptroller’s Office, Building 2318 on Patch Barracks, and we will ensure that the items get to Landstuhl ASAP.  If you would like to donate your time, volunteers are needed to assist in sorting and stocking incoming donations and helping the Chaplain and medical staff to get these items to the Soldiers.  If you would like to make a monetary donation, please follow the directions on the WEB site.  Monetary donations are used to buy specific high volume items.

WWMC is supported by military and civilian volunteer efforts, and by individual, organizational and corporate gifts and funds.  They appreciate the efforts of each and every person willing to share “hugs from home” and words of encouragement with those who have given so much for the cause of Freedom in our world.

Wounded Warriors arrive at Landstuhl hospital sometimes with very little clothes on their back. Soldiers are issued only two sets of BDUs and no civilian clothes. The Government issues a PX voucher for those transferred to US hospitals, but immediate items are needed for them to be comfortable during their rehabilitation in Germany.

This is our chapter’s way of saying 'Thank You' to the troops for their dedication and sacrifice to the United States and the citizens they have pledged their lives to protect.
