Old Navy helping troops stay connected

SAN FRANCISCO Old Navy, the exclusive retail apparel sponsor of The USO Presents "VH1 Divas Salute The Troops," announced that from Dec. 3 through Dec. 9, Old Navy and its customers will aim to raise one million minutes for USO Operation Phone Home, which provides the time to U.S. troops stationed around the world to help them stay connected to their loved ones at home. Minutes can be bought in-store or online at OldNavy.com during the weeklong challenge -- 100-minutes for $5. Additionally, Old Navy Facebook fans can donate even more minutes during the week just by "checking-in" to an Old Navy store with their mobile device and claiming a Facebook charity Deal; Old Navy will make a 100-minute, $5 donation to USO Operation Phone Home for every in-store check-in.

"Old Navy understands the importance of family," said Tom Wyatt, president of Old Navy. "Together with our customers, we hope that supporting USO Operation Phone Home with one million minutes will provide comfort, hope and joy over this holiday season for our troops overseas and their families at home."
