The Belgard and USO partnership launched in 2015 with the company's "Welcome Home" initiative. Belgard donated $100,000 and tapped into its network of talented contractors to renovate the outdoor living spaces of the USO center in Colorado Springs. The company is dedicated to supporting military personnel and their families due to the large number of active duty and veterans among the Belgard workforce.

During the month of May 2016, Belgard partnered once again and donated $1 for every Idea Book order, social share, email share and social like raising $50,000. These funds raised by Belgard will support USO programs that provide an array of services, from providing resume help for service members transitioning out of the military to providing dinner to local military families.

About the USO

The USO strengthens America's military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. At hundreds of locations worldwide, we are united in our commitment to connect our service members and their families through countless acts of caring, comfort, and support. The USO is a private, non-profit organization, not a government agency. Our programs, services and entertainment tours are made possible by the American people, support of our corporate partners and the dedication of our volunteers and staff. In addition to individual donors and corporate sponsors, the USO is supported by President's Circle Partners: AT&T, the BNSF Railway Foundation, Clark Construction Group, LLC, The Coca-Cola Company, Johnson & Johnson, Kroger, NFL and Four-Star Partners: BIC, ConAgra Foods, FedEx, GEICO, JCPenney, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, Starbucks, TKS and the Wawa Foundation. We are also supported through the United Way and Combined Federal Campaign (CFC-11381). To join us in this important mission, and to learn more about the USO, please visit
