Leidos will donate $100 to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation for every blocked shot during the Washington Wizards’ Defending the Rim program.

Roger Krone, Leidos CEO, said Tuesday the company supports “military veterans, troops and their families through several organizations, including the USO (United Service Organizations) and Special Operations Warrior Foundation.”

Leidos will also host the ‘Military Appreciation Night’ on Wednesday at Verizon Center, where the USO will bring 400 active-duty members and their family to the game between the Wizards and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The SOWF assists active and reserve personnel that serve in the U.S. Special Operations Command.
