Saying goodbye to a loved one who’s deploying is never easy. Robin Crouse, the Center Director at USO Fort Hood, thought she might have just the thing to provide the kids of those deploying a little something to remember Mom or Dad by.
Avon had recently donated dozens of their “Sparky the Dog” plush toys, and families were given one to ease the strain of separation. Crouse had this to say about Avon, “They will be so pleased to see they brought smiles to the faces of so many kids at Fort Hood.”
We hope you enjoy this video of that day. To learn more about Avon’s support of the USO, please click here.
