PHILADELPHIA – May 25, 2023 – FS Investments’ Women’s Network, FS Heroes and FS Family Network co-sponsored an event ahead of Mother’s Day in partnership with the United Service Organizations (USO) of Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey. FS Investments was joined by Jennifer Hodur, Director, Families of the Fallen at the USO. FS Investments’ Employee Resource Groups frequently host events that uplift the surrounding community and support the firm’s values. At this event, colleagues created care packages and made cards for service members or spouses who are expecting or have had a baby in the last six months. These packages were added to a larger collection of donations for an event honoring expecting military moms on May 7.

“It was my absolute pleasure to speak to your very artistic group. I especially felt the love in the Mother’s Day cards. They were genuinely wonderful!”

– Jennifer Hodur, Director, Families of the Fallen, USO

The USO has supported military personnel and enhanced the quality of life for military families for 80 years. Learn more about the USO of Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey here.

Some FS Investments employees have strong relationships with the local military community, including Leah Herman.

“The USO has had a personal impact on my life, so I am so glad that we were able to bring this organization to FS to be able to give back. The cards and care packages were incredibly heartfelt. The heads of the FS Family Network, Lauren Dougherty and Melanie Hemmert, handpicked each item and it was a group effort across many different people at the firm to create these wonderful cards and packages”
