Retirement Guys, Crissey Elementary support troopsWritten by Staff Reports | | email@example.com
The Retirement Guys and Crissey Elementary of Springfield Local School District are once again teaming up to support military members deployed overseas.
The staff at the Retirement Guys’ Toledo-based independent financial planning firm adopted a troop of 39 soldiers through AdoptAPlatoon, an organization dedicated to sending cards, letters and care packages to military members serving far from home.
Teacher Anjanette Newcombe and her team of fourth-and-fifth grade teachers and students are making cards and collecting items to send. The Retirement Guys partnered with the school’s fifth-graders last year and expanded to both fourth and fifth-graders this year.
“Adopting a troop really seemed like a perfect fit for our community give-back campaign because so many of our customers are veterans themselves,” said attorney Mark Clair, co-owner of The Retirement Guys Network, in a news release. “It is a wonderful way for our staff and customers to join together and spread a little bit of happiness to our dedicated service personnel.”
Nolan Baker, chief financial officer of The Retirement Guys Network and an investment adviser representative of NEXT Financial Group Inc., agreed.
“We all hope that it will bring a little bit of happiness to our troop members,” Baker said.
The Retirement Guys are Toledo Free Press columnists.
