This past weekend, Team FTI supported Troopster.org during the 4th Annual Holiday Pack event at Beach Social in Virginia Beach, Va. Employees and their families helped pack 1200 care packages for sailors onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln for the holidays. FTI has had the pleasure of supporting Troopster.org for the past four years through the 4th C efforts. The event was a huge success and the participation from our employees and their families was awe-inspiring and continues to grow each year.
Troopster, as described on their website, is a nonprofit 501c3 charity that is inspired by the courageous men and women serving in the United States Armed Forces.
” We work to find the best ways possible to get care packages to our troops no matter where in the world they may be or what missions they might be serving. Children to adults, everyone wants to support those they love and those who defend our country and we strive to always make the process of that support an easy and affordable effort. Trust in us as we have been there and won’t let you down.” Chelsea Mandello – CEO & Founder
Their Mission: To increase the morale of the Armed Forces community – One service member, deployment and care package at a time.
Their Vision: The Troopster Vision is to be the household name of military deployment kits for the 1.3 M U.S. service members and their families – Beginning with a goal to send 20,000 packages this year to soldiers deployed around the world.
