Carter Interiors Team Volunteers to Support U.S. Troops

By Sarah Peddar, Business Development Manager, Carter

ATLANTA (Jan. 9, 2011) – Last week, the Carter Interior Project Management Team rolled up their sleeves and volunteered to support the USO on one of the nonprofit’s busiest days. 

Nearly 7,000 troops traveled through the Atlanta airport on Jan. 4 as they returned from holiday leave with their families. Buses picked up troops at the airport and headed to Georgia’s Fort Benning and Fort Gordon for training.

Furman Wood, long-time USO supporter and Managing Partner at Commercial Property Professionals, organized a 24-hour event where volunteers welcomed service men and women to Atlanta and helped support the USO’s mission. Jennie Rusciano, Allison Cummins and I staffed the event from 8 p.m. to midnight by checking-in troops and handing out meals.

Earlier in the day the entire Interiors Team met at Nan Loudon’s house to prepare 200 of these meals that included a turkey or ham sandwich, chips, a cookie and of course some Carter mints! The team even used their design background to decorate the bags.

That evening Nan Loudon and Amy Hunt both flew out of the Atlanta airport to attend meetings for a project Carter is working on with Starwood Vacation Ownership in Orlando, Fla.

“There were troops everywhere and I was so proud of our group for getting involved in the cause,” said Loudon. “Not only did we do a small piece to thank our troops for their service, we also had an opportunity to draw closer as a team.”
