On Wednesday evening, November 11th, Hunzinger Construction Company’s H2 Building located at 21050 Enterprise Avenue, Brookfield, WI, played host to 35 matches from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County for the 5th Annual Troop Care Shipment by BBBS and Hunzinger. “Bigs” and “Littles” stuffed holiday stockings with much needed items for care packages for our troops overseas. The Littles wrote cards and letters and decorated ornaments for the stockings. They filled the stockings with candy, Ramen noodles, Easy Mac, beef jerky, gum, mints, trail mix, granola bars and tube socks, all heavily requested items.
The night included a presentation by Carl Broberg, a Hunzinger Project Manager, Army Reservist, and 3 time combat veteran, serving two tours in Afghanistan and one tour in Iraq. Carl Broberg, currently an Engineer Warrant Officer for the United States Army, shared his experiences with the children and spoke about all the different job and career opportunities offered by the Army. Everyone had a great time preparing the care packages, eating pizza and catching up with other matches.
At Hunzinger, we appreciate others getting involved in our Troop Care Shipment Program. It is rewarding to see the enthusiasm people bring to this effort. To date, our Troop Care Shipment Program has delivered 42 tons of supplies to 100 military units on 20 bases.
