Tents for Troops (T4T), an initiative promoting free camping for military personnel, has partnered with motorhome builder Fleetwood RV Inc.
According to a press release, Decatur, Ind.-based Fleetwood will package an information sheet written by T4T board member Evanne Schmarder in the owners manual of every new Fleetwood motorhome. T4T founder Charlie Curry noted that the manufacturer has been a strong support since the program’s inception.
“This is just great news for us and we can not thank Fleetwood enough,” said Curry. “We had hoped to be able to provide Fleetwood with small and classy T4T stickers but after exploring the cost of having those produced we had no choice but to go with to go with a simple information sheet which is fine. Fleetwood sells a lot of RVs and we hope that many of these new RV owners will be helping us spread the word about T4T.”
In other news, Curry reported that actor Robin Williams recently mentioned Tents for Troops on his Facebook page, which in turned generated a surge on the T4T Facebook page in just over 24 hours.
