From now to June 18, travel agents can donate goods to the USO at their local airports to support traveling military members. In addition to supporting USO, Apple Vacations is offering several volunteer agent fam trips as part of the effort.Why It Matters:The new initiative is part of Apple Vacations’ Agents Give Back campaign, which offers travel agents across the country the opportunity to take part in numerous volunteer and donation opportunities. This program is a great way to give back while enhancing the public profile of all advisors and highlighting the role they play in the industry.
