RCOC employees again generous in donation to troops

Once again this year, Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) employees generously contributed to the Oakland County Bar Association Veterans’ Committee’s campaign to support U.S. troops stationed overseas.

The campaign, known as Americans Thank Our Troops (ATOT), provides care packages for the troops. In 2013, the effort resulted in four tons worth of care packages being shipped to 24 U.S. military units deployed overseas.

On Tuesday, March 18, Road Commission employees Patrick Castillo and Brian

Kozlowicz were joined by Road Commission Board Member Eric Wilson (a member of the Bar Association’s Veteran’s Committee) to pick up items purchased with cash donations at the Selfridge Air National Guard Base commissary to be shipped later to the troops.

In addition to cash, the donations included toiletries, batteries, insect repellent, snack foods, coffees, DVD movies and more.

“This is a great way to support the men and women who serve our country,” Commissioner Wilson said. “I know this means a lot to the troops, and I’m proud of the RCOC staff for their participation in this.”

Wilson, a Vietnam veteran, has led RCOC’s involvement in the event for each of the last three years.
