Two Vermont military families were selected anonymously to be the recipients of Davis & Hodgdon Associates CPAs’ 2018 holiday gift drive. The families, from Georgia and St. Albans Vermont were selected on the basis of need, and each family includes at least one parent who is currently deployed overseas.
Staff from Davis & Hodgdon offices in Rutland and Williston provided unwrapped gifts for the family’s children, as well as donations in the form of holiday breakfast baskets and grocery gift cards.
“In past years we have enjoyed participating in various state-wide holiday gift drives”, said John Davis, managing partner at Davis & Hodgdon Associates. “It was especially satisfying for our staff this year to be able to give back to military families who have sacrificed, and continue to sacrifice, so much on our behalf.”
“Having soldiers deployed overseas during the holidays is especially challenging, but this type of support of our families makes the burden a little lighter. Especially for the children, a few extra gifts makes our families feel valued and cared for. It also allows our soldiers to work hard and know their families are well taken care of and supported”, said Captain Nathan Dubie, Rear Det. Commander (C Co 3/126 AVN MEDEVAC), for the Vermont Army National Guard.
