LOUISVILLE, KY— February 18, 2020 – USA Cares is kicking off 2020 by presenting its first Rise Up & Shine breakfast on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, at the beautiful, newly renovated Galt House in downtown Louisville. This event will provide an excellent platform to educate and inspire our community members about the valuable services USA Cares provides for service members, veterans, and their families.
