All for the Troops Annual Campaign Slated for September 7-14
Cassidy Turley, a leading commercial real estate services provider in the U.S., announced today that it is joining forces with local organizations to gather much-needed items for U.S. military servicemen and servicewomen serving overseas. The target goal is to collect 400 boxes for the All for the Troops special collection campaign, which will take place September 7-14.
Central Ohioans can participate in this community effort by dropping off specific items at any of Goodwill’s 20 area stores and donation centers located throughout Central Ohio. To show their support, Goodwill will offer a daily 20 percent military discount with a military ID.
In addition, a special collection day has been set for Thursday, September 11, from11 a.m. to 1 p.m., outside the Cassidy Turley offices at 325 John McConnell Blvd. in the Arena District. Volunteers will be visible in front of the Union Station Arch and ready to collect items and monetary donations.
“We are honored to present the All for the Troops collection campaign for the fourth consecutive year,” said Tom McGarity, Managing Principal at Cassidy Turley’s Columbus offices and All for the Troops Honorary Chairperson. “This event continues to grow in scope, thanks to our giving and caring community. We are touching the lives of our much-deserving troops and showing them our support.”
Goodwill Columbus, North American Broadcasting Co. (99.7FM “The Blitz”, WMNI AM 920, 103.9 Jack-FM), Blue Star Mothers-Buckeye Military Moms Chapter 9, Big Lots and Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland will assist with the event. Cassidy Turley is seeking Girl Scout troops that want to organize their own collection drives and donations for the campaign. Each troop member will earn a community service patch for her work.
Cassidy Turley is a recipient of a 2014 Business First Corporate Caring Award for the All for the Troops campaign. Last year’s campaign netted $5,000 in monetary donations and in-kind gifts totaling $37,000.
