Giant-Landover receives top award from D.C. USO

USO-Metro gives Ahold USA chain Circle of the Stars award

LANDOVER, Md. — USO's division for the nation's capital has named supermarket chain Giant Food of Landover, Md., to its USO-Metro 2013 Circle of the Stars for an annual networking event, the chain said.

Giant-Landover said it received the honor during the non-profit group's 10th annual Stars and Stripes Night at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington, Va. Giant said the Circle of the Stars is an elite award given to top-level corporate donors that provide funding to support USO-Metro's mission to lift the spirits of military service members and their families. Giant was named at the Four-Star level, the highest.

"We are so honored and humbled that giant is an active and generous supporter of USO-Metro," USO of Metropolitan Washington president and CEO Elaine Rogers said. "This past year, USO-Metro touched the lives of thousands of local and traveling military members and their families. We couldn't provide the broad range of programs we deliver without the generous and incredible support of Giant and its amazing associates."
