Dilbeck Gives Back to Troops With ‘We Care’ Packages

First published in the Sept. 29 print issue of the Outlook Valley Sun.

Dilbeck Real Estate will partner again this year with For the Troops, an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that collects, packages and ships “We Care” packages to troops all over the world.
These packages contain basic necessities, goodies, games and — most of all — a show of support. Items will be collected between Sept. 26 and Oct. 28. Volunteers are also needed to help package the items during a special event in early November.
Since its inception in 2005, For The Troops has substantially grown in volunteers and donors, and has distributed more than 250,000 packages year-round to American troops who risk their lives overseas every day — far away from the comforts of home.
As part of our ongoing service commitment to active military, veterans and first responders, Dilbeck’s Operation Keys for Our Heroes program works with our affiliate partners to offer multiple discounts on home purchases.
Care for Our Heroes is an extension of that program, an annual drive to help collect and gather items for those packages. It gives our sales partners not only a chance to give back, but to bring our communities together, raise awareness and get as many local residents involved as possible.
Donations needed include baby wipes, hand sanitizer, cotton swabs, stationery items, travel size sunscreen, Aspirin/Ibuprofen, toothpaste, feminine hygiene products, eye drops, foot powder, crossword/puzzle books and athletic socks (black, white and brown).
Those interested in donating can drop off your items at any Dilbeck office during the collection period (Sept. 26 – Oct. 28), purchase items for donation through Dilbeck offices: rb.gy/ih7ljp.
Additionally, many of Dilbeck’s sales partners will be distributing paper bags to their local areas, to make it easy for our neighbors to participate, as well. If you see one of these, participants can drop items in the bag and bring it to a Dilbeck office, or let the agent know when it’s ready to be picked up.
