Topeka, Ind.-based CrossRoads RV announced today (May 25) the launch of Operation Appreciation, an initiative designed to show its support for the men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
According to a press release, CrossRoads RV and Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp Resort at Barton Lake in Fremont, Ind., are offering free lodging to any active member of the U.S. military. The park is donating a seasonal lot while CrossRoads RV is supplying a Hampton destination trailer, which the company manufactures, to be used exclusively by active members of the U.S. military and their families free of charge.
Reservations must be made in advance with availability on a first come, first serve basis. An open house marking the event is scheduled for Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Barton Lake park.
“We wanted to do something special for U.S. service men and women to show our appreciation for their sacrifice, bravery and hard work that ensure our freedom and American way of life,” explained CrossRoads President Don Emahiser. “While experiencing the great amenities of Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp Resort, they will enjoy luxury accommodations in our Hampton destination trailer that includes a spacious living area, fully equipped kitchen, master bedroom, kid’s bunk room, and full bath.”
Emahiser added that there had been tremendous response from local military families.
Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp Resort at Barton Lake is located in northeast Indiana 50 miles north of Fort Wayne. Any active member of the U.S. military wanting to make reservations should contact CrossRoads Marketing Director Dave Boggs at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 888-226-7496.
