Keller Williams’ ‘Thank a Soldier’ Packs Boxes for U.S. Troops

U.S. soldiers overseas will be happy this holiday season when they receive filled gift boxes arriving from the Keller Williams offices in La Cañada Flintridge, Burbank and Glendale. Local residents gathered on Saturday in the parking lot of the KW’s LCF office and packed boxes with everyday essentials such as snacks, protein bars, deodorant, disposable razors, foot powder, handy wipes, lotion, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, books and crossword puzzles for the troops. “A similar event took place on Oct. 19 in Burbank and together, with the help of the communities and our generous sponsors, we were able to pack more than 1,000 care boxes for our brave men and women overseas,” said Nick Avedessian of KW. “Sydni Taylor and her committee get the full credit for the success of the event. We are still accepting donations and the cost of shipping these packages is on us.” For more information or to help, call (818) 790-0048.
