Deployed Soldiers receive community donation
January 22, 2013
BAUMHOLDER, Germany (Jan. 22, 2013) -- Soldiers from the 92nd Military Police Company currently deployed to Afghanistan will soon receive care packages courtesy of the employees at the video store in the Rheinlander Community Club, here.
The idea to collect donations for deployed Soldiers was a spontaneous thing that Elsa Rios, store manager, and her employees came up with.
"We appreciate the generosity of the Baumholder community and I am certain that our deployed brothers and sisters will also be thankful for this contribution," said Capt. Nicholas Yetman, 92nd MP Company commander.
The donations came from customers who visited the video store during December, so in reality, the support for deployed Soldiers stems from the generosity of Baumholder video fans.
"The donation is not much but we hope it will benefit our deployed Soldiers," said Rios. "We just decided to collect some money during the month of December for Soldiers that were deployed. It was just a thought that we had and we did it."
