This stocking may be the only thing they receive for their entire deployment
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Turnquist Partners Realtors, Inc. ("Turnquist Partners"), a leading real estate firm based in Austin, Texas, is helping local volunteers from Stockings for Soldiers, a community project that is dedicated to sending stockings full of items to troops who are stationed at Fort Hood, but are currently deployed to Afghanistan, by providing drop off locations for donations in the Austin area.
Stockings for Soldiers community project is organized by local volunteers and Family Readiness Group Members (FRG) who help collect donations to fill up each stocking. Similar community projects are happening for military units all over the country and Stockings for Soldiers supporting Fort Hood units is just one example of how to give back to the troops stationed locally.
"I have a son who is currently deployed in Afghanistan and know how important it is for these men and women to know that we have not forgotten about them and their sacrifices. This stocking may be the only thing they receive for their entire deployment," said Desmond Milvenan, Realtor, VP of Sales at Turnquist Partners and a volunteer for Stockings for Soldiers. "I know that there are people doing the same thing for my son at his stationed base in North Carolina and feel it’s the least we can do for someone who is stationed locally."
Donations for Stockings for Soldiers for Fort Hood can be made until October 18, 2013 at:
Turnquist Partners Realtors
3700 Bee Caves Road,
Austin, TX 78746.
