BBQ for the Troops at Nimnicht Chevrolet
The Nimnicht Chevrolet team is committed to supporting our troops however we can. To do our part, Nimnicht Chevrolet, located at 1550 Cassat Ave. in Jacksonville, hosted a BBQ Fundraiser on Saturday, November 18th from 12-2p.m. to raise money for the Greater Jacksonville Area United Service Organization (USO). With help from partner BJ’s Wholesale Club, Nimnicht Chevrolet raised money to support troops both at home and abroad.
The Big Event
On Saturday, November 18th, Nimnicht Chevrolet was honored to host the USO BBQ for the Troops in Jacksonville, inviting the Orange Park and St. Augustine communities together to raise money for our Armed Services. Attendees of the Jacksonville event were treated to grilled hamburgers and hot dogs courtesy of BJ’s Wholesale Club as well as a fun and relaxing environment. In addition to providing an exciting and engaging event, our Jacksonville dealership donated $100 for every car sold on the day of the event as a dedication both to those who serve and to their loved ones.
More About the USO
The event itself would never have been possible without the Jacksonville USO, the local Jacksonville branch of the United Service Organization. The USO works tirelessly to support U.S. troops wherever they may be by providing the support and services military members and their families need. Every year, the Greater Jacksonville Area USO reaches out to over 250,000 local military members, providing information, recreation, and monetary support. The USO is completely self-funded and manages to provide over $1 million each year to the troops in the form of services and events. A few of the services they provide include:
- Organizing and helping plan deployment and homecoming celebrations
- Preparing and serving free meals twice a month to struggling military members and families
- Offering discounted tickets to movies, amusement parks, and more
- Distributing more than 12,000 Care Packages to active duty members
