Xbox and OSD are partnering again to bring much needed support to the military and veteran community – both deployed and those at home. From February 10, 2020 through March 31, 2020, Xbox will match every dollar donated, up to a total of $250,000*.
Donations will help support mental health and wellness for deployed troops by providing resources and morale boosts in the form of video games, tabletop games, coffee and more. State-side, contributions will outfit gear and support programming activations at more than 50 OSD partnered recreation and community centers for thousands of active military, veterans and their families.
