Signs of Gratitude for Local Troops
Vancouver FASTSIGNS® Offers Free "Welcome Home" Banners through the end of September
(VANCOUVER, Wash.) July 29, 2010 – In recognition of those who serve in our military FASTSIGNS® of Vancouver is making sure local families will have a special way to welcome home their soldiers. Throughout the months of August and September, the Vancouver FASTSIGNS sign and graphic center wants these families to have a "Welcome Home" banner displayed proudly for their returning loved ones, at no cost.
"Our soldiers and their families have sacrificed much in the way of protecting our freedoms and we feel this is the least we can do to express our gratitude and support," said Barry Leung, owner and general manager.
As small business owners, Leung and his wife and co-owner Teresa Kung have made community outreach and charitable support a priority.
"FASTSIGNS amazed me with their generosity, loving kindness and professionalism—I contacted them to have a banner made for my returning soldier and was in tears of gratitude when they told me it would be free," said Kryssi Nelson. "I designed the sign, but FASTSIGNS made it possible. Thank you FASTSIGNS for helping to welcome my soldier home in such a special way - we displayed it proudly. God Bless FASTSIGNS and God bless the soldiers and their families in their unforgettable reunion."
"I can only imagine the emotions that everyone is going through when a soldier comes home and reunites with his or her family," said Teresa Kung, who opened the Vancouver FASTSIGNS in 2008. "This is one thing we can do to help make a difference in this very sweet moment."
Families interested in having a banner made for their returning loved one should contact Vancouver FASTSIGNS about one week in advance to make the request. Each 2’ x 4’ banner is designed in a patriotic manner and is customized with the returning soldier’s name.
"We look forward to working on the banners—every request represents someone who is on their way back home," said Leung. Every family is eligible for one banner. The Vancouver FASTSIGNS plans to continue their "Welcome Home to the Troops" campaign through the end of September, or until their budget maxes out.
