TURKEY DAY ASSIST
is a way of life
Every year the PUSO Family uses its proceeds from our annual Swish 4 A Wish basketball tourney to host a "Thanksgiving Turkey Day Assist" for the underserved community in the Washington D.C. Metro Area. Since the launch of this program we have served approximately 200 families currently living in homeless shelters by providing freshly cooked Thanksgiving meals, warm gloves, haircuts, surprise presents for the kids, and most importantly our time and care.
