Tukaiz has announced that Daniel Defino, vice president and managing director at Tukaiz, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the USO of Metropolitan New York. Tukaiz’ partnership with the USO began with Fleet Week 2011 in the New York harbors, when Tukaiz helped design and produce signage and other printed items for that occasion. Since then, Tukaiz has supported additional USO fundraising events and service programs, and has worked with other USO chapters in Chicago, Washington and New York.
“At Tukaiz, we feel we are continually blessed in what we’ve accomplished, and we’re pleased to be able to support worthwhile organizations when we can,” said Daniel Defino. “Being part of the Board of the USO New York gives us the opportunity to help develop the direction of an organization that supports our troops and our country in an effort to raise money to be used for various critical programs, whether at home or abroad.”
The Metropolitan New York chapter of the USO is the largest in the nation and serves as a leading force in the strategic direction of the USO nationwide. For more than 70 years, the USO has provided a wide range of support services to Active Duty members of the U.S. military, Reserves and National Guard and their families, both at home and around the world.
