Advanced Remarketing Services Brings Holiday Cheer to Local New England Soldiers
Christmas is a time of year that brings families, friends and co-workers together. For some of us we have people who are close to our hearts who are currently serving overseas. It’s particularly important for us at Advanced Remarketing Services to make them feel like they are still connected to our traditions here in America and closer to home.
On staff we have veterans who have proudly served for our country and still have close ties to people who are currently active in the military. Advanced Remarketing Services has adopted a small unit of soldiers that are from the New England area (based out of Springfield, MA) and are currently stationed in a country located the Middle East.
Stockings for Soldiers
We’ve made it our mission to give them a small slice of New England on this special holiday. In order to make this happen, we’ve been hosting $2.00 dress down days within the office to raise money for our “stockings for soldiers”, as well as accepting donations of local non-perishable foods to send within our care packages. Some of our employees have children who’ve been creating letters to mail along with the food and Christmas stockings expressing how thankful they are for the selfless work they do that keeps us safe here in America.
Individualizing each stocking with a troop member’s name, it is our hope that it will feel like a stocking that would have been hung up in their own homes. In a place where nothing seems familiar, receiving care packages like this truly gives people an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia. It would bring back memories of sitting around eating with family and friends, laughing and opening gifts. We want them to have a sense like they’re enjoying the typical traditions that we all might sometimes take for granted. For those who don’t currently have this luxury, it could mean the world to them. At Advanced Remarketing Services, we’ve surely done our best to over achieve this goal to give each and every one of our adopted soldiers this feeling.
Home is not just a place but a feeling and there is certainly no place like home.
Happy Holidays from the Advanced Remarketing Services family!
