Thank You Deployment for Military Community Members at TooManyGames ‘Gifts for Gamers’ Event with OSD Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA, PENN. December 11, 2017 /For immediate release/ — OSD Philadelphia hosts seven military community members for a “Thank You Deployment” while attending annual TooManyGames Gifts for Gamers event at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center.

 

Gifts for Gamers is an event where TooManyGames gives back to the community. All proceeds benefit the area’s largest hunger relief organization, Philabundance. Gifts for Gamers has meet and greets with famous YouTubers, a vendor area where you can buy your gifts for all your gamer family and friends, and photos with Santa.

OSD Philadelphia Team Leader, Addam Carothers, said, “One of the Veterans attending is a full time tech at FTIG and SSG in the PA National Guard, recently his wife was in a car accident. She has been in rehab for awhile, and this event helped their family come together in a fun environment. This event had a Santa there that he and his family could get pictures with.”

 

Carothers continued, “Helping with this Thank You Deployment really meant a lot to me, I’ve known these soldiers for years and to be able to help them means a lot.”

 

OSD’s “Thank You Deployment” program rewards military community members with once-in-a-lifetime outings as thanks for continued service. Recipients of these experiences are nominated by the community and include outdoor activities, sporting events, conferences and live music. To date, over 2,500 military community members have enjoyed “Thank You Deployments” around the US.
