Pettit Kohn Proud to Sponsor USO Waves of Appreciation Project

Pettit Kohn Ingrassia & Lutz was a proud sponsor of the 2013 USO Waves of Appreciation project. Created in 2011 by a coalition of the San Diego Waves (alumni chapter of Pepperdine University), the USO San Diego and other San Diego organizations, Waves of Appreciation (WOA) was founded to provide a food resource to members of our armed services who fly home on holiday leave.

San Diego has one of the largest concentrations of active-duty military in the free world. Every year an average of 3,500 service members go home for the holidays on commercial flights from the San Diego International Airport. Long hours in airports, airport food prices and the absence of food on so many flights present challenges to the financial resources of these young service members. Waves of Appreciation bags aim to provide food to keep the service members from going hungry.

Along with the sponsorship, Pettit Kohn team members had the opportunity to volunteer with friends and family to assemble WOA bags in November, then distribute the snack bags at the San Diego Airport December 20th thru 24th.
