Think about all that you’ve done in the past week. You’ve worked in a job of your choosing; taken children to school and activities; participated in community or faith-based activities; watched TV, read, or surfed the internet; and celebrated a holiday by relaxing with those you love. We are so fortunate to live in a country where we exercise our rights and freedom on a daily basis!
Though we sometimes fail to acknowledge it, that freedom comes with a price. Men and women all over the world pay that price daily; they sacrifice their time and comfort, and often their health, even their lives. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, over 1.2 million individuals serve in the U.S. military. We, at Schaefer, are thankful for those people who give up so much for us.
We are pleased to announce that, in cooperation with Travelers Insurance, we will be participating in a program that helps our troops stay connected with their family and friends. Each of our locations will serve as a drop-off for the Old Cell Phone program. You can donate your used cell phones and wireless devices. These will then be recycled, and the proceeds used to purchase calling cards for troops visiting the USO facility at Lambert St. Louis Airport.
Thank you, in advance, for joining with Schaefer Autobody Centers and Travelers Insurance to support our troops in a practical and meaningful way. And thank you to all those currently serving, who have served, or who have sacrificed along with your loved ones who served. We appreciate what you do and have done for us!
