LAS VEGAS (Feb. 3, 2016) – This Valentine’s Day weekend, Grand Bazaar Shops, in partnership with the USO Las Vegas, invites locals and Las Vegas visitors to “Share the Love” with United States troops stationed overseas. There are currently more than 220,000 U.S. military personnel deployed around the world and this Valentine’s Day, Grand Bazaar Shops will make them all feel loved by gathering donations and delivering heartfelt thank you notes collected over the holiday weekend from Friday, Feb. 12 through Sunday, Feb.14.

From noon to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday, the USO Las Vegas will have a “Share the Love” outpost at Grand Bazaar Shops’ Grand Allée, near the entrance to the shops off Las Vegas Boulevard. Guests can visit the outpost for the opportunity to share their words of gratitude and love by writing a note to servicemen and women who aren’t able to spend Valentine’s Day with their loved ones. Guests will get to drop their notes in an oversized letterbox specially designed for the event and donated by Heather Allen Concepts.

Donations to the USO Las Vegas are welcome and guests who donate a minimum of $10 will receive a $10 shopping voucher to use at Grand Bazaar Shops as a thank you for their support.
