Tents for Troops (T4T) will have a booth at the PVRCA RV Show in Hershey, Pennsylvania from Sept. 13-17.
Trevor Wilson (US Navy SEAL 2006-16) is a full-time RVer and tireless T4T advocate/volunteer who will be in the T4T booth every day of the show and will also be speaking in the Champions Club daily discussing RVing within the Military and ways everyday RVers can help spread the word about T4T.
T4T now has Family friendly RV Parks across 48 States available for the Troops to use for free. The association has asked OEMs and RV dealers to consider donating $1 for each RV they build or sell to the T4T loaner RV fund.
“We also would love to have folks that are purchasing a new RV at Hershey to consider donating your current RV to T4T,” Charlie Curry with the association says. “Your RV donation would not only help provide countless RV vacations for our Troops, but may come with substantial tax advantages as well.”
The booth will be in the Giant Center in booth 405 on the concourse level and Wilson will be at The Champions Club on Wednesday, Sept. 13 from 10-11 a.m. and Thursday through Sunday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
