Evansville’s Atlas Van Lines Collects Over Four Thousand Baby Items for Military Moms

(Dittoe Public Relations)

Once again, when the call went out to assist those in need, the tri-state answered.

During the recent United Leasing Championship golf tournament at Newburgh’s Victoria National Golf Club, Atlas Van Lines asked the tri-state community to donate essential baby items for military families stationed at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. Through numerous donation drives leading up to and during the June 28th – July 1st event, Atlas Van Lines, in partnership with Birdies for the Brave Patriots Outpost and Web.com, accepted over 4,000 baby items generously donated by tri-state residents for the Red, White, and Baby Shower.

According to a press release provided by Atlas Van Lines, items collected included 15 blankets, 247 pieces of clothing, 3,072 diapers, 83 packages of baby wipes, 248 hygiene products, 360 baby food containers, and 64 bottles or toys. In addition, $307 in cash donations were collected through the purchase of chicken sandwiches during the tournament provided by Chick-fil-A.

Atlas also offered complimentary admission to the Patriots’ Outpost tent for all active, reserve, and retired military members during the tournament as well as 250 tickets for veterans who wanted to watch the action unfold on the course.

Visitors of the Patriots’ Outpost tent were given the opportunity to record video messages to members of the military deployed overseas.

When asked about what it means to provide this assistance to military families, Atlas Van Lines president and COO, Jack Griffin said, ” It’s an honor to give back to the families of those who serve our country so bravely, and we couldn’t have done this without the overwhelming support we received from our employees, as well as the local community. Supporting our local military personnel and their families is such a privilege, and we look forward to continuing to support those who fight for us and our country.”

Shirley West, director of Armed Services YMCA at Ft. Campbell added, “It’s great to have such a long list of donations to offer our military families. Atlas Van Lines went above and beyond to provide baby essentials to the mothers at Ft. Campbell. We’re looking forward to sharing these items with our families.”

Atlas will deliver the items to Ft. Campbell today.
