Door to Door Storage Sends Care Packages to Overseas U.S. Troops

Posted on Dec 30 2013 - 11:20am by Holly Robinson

The United States military has over 164,000 troops in active duty in areas outside of the United States. That’s a lot of men and women who are unable to spend the Christmas holidays with their families. Door to Door Storage, Inc. recently sent out their second care package shipment to those troops serving in our Armed Forces.

“For over 4 years now, the Door to Door team has been proud to have the opportunity to show support for our troops,” said Tracey Kelly, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Door to Door Storage®. “I sincerely hope that these items and letters help provide some measure of comfort while our soldiers are away from their families during the holidays.”

Door to Door filled cases with a wide range of items: snacks, powdered drinks, magazines, video games, jerky, and personal luxury items. Letters and cards were also included with the shipment. Door to Door employees and family members of employees took time from their busy holiday activities to write and make the cards. They expressed appreciation for the service and sacrifices that our U.S. military personnel make for our country.

“We would like to thank each and every man and woman serving in our nation’s armed forces and wish them all a happy holiday,” said Paul Reed, Chief Executive Officer of Door to Door.

Door to Door sent other care packages earlier this year. They sent 26 packages to troops stationed on the frontline in Afghanistan for the 4th of July. The packages were sent to US Air Force Colonel Brad Bredenkamp to distribute to the troops stationed at the Bagram Airbase.

Door to Door has a history of doing charitable services. Last year when wildfires in Texas destroyed homes and properties, they participated in the ABC-TV show Extreme Makeover for a volunteer firefighter whose home burned down while she was out battling the fire.

They also donated more than a thousand employee volunteer hours (plus donating storage containers) to assist in the rebuilding of the communities of Spicewood and Bastrop County after the devastating Labor Day wildfire.

They also created special promotions in conjunction with local affiliates in New York to help families that were affected by Superstorm Sandy. They participated in the Toys for Joy program that benefited needy families in Kent, Washington. Their employees participated in the annual Chili Cook Off whose proceeds supported an abused women program.
