The USS Fort Worth (LCS-3) Support Committee is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide unparalleled moral support to and appreciation for the service to the USS Fort Worth's crew and families. They aim to infuse the USS Fort Worth with the friendship, heritage, and spirit of the city of Fort Worth during its service life, and to provide lasting, favorable memories of the USS Fort Worth and the city of Fort Worth to all who serve aboard her.
In the process, they work locally to promote the awareness of the USS Fort Worth in its service throughout the local community.
The Support Committee holds monthly happy hours to collect items for care packages to send to the USS Fort Worth. Each month, they collect something different to show their love and appreciation for the men and women who serve aboard the USS Fort Worth. Follow them on Facebook to find the latest location, date, and time.
