The Orchards Groups’ Active Adults Collect Items for Troops

The Orchards Group is proud to provide its active adults opportunities to not only spend time together, but to also come together to give back to their community and the nation. At The Orchards at Crabapple, an active adult community in Roswell from The Orchards Group, homeowners recently collected items to send to American troops overseas.

In only three weeks, homeowners collected over 23 cartons worth of supplies for the troops. These supplies were delivered to the Alpharetta American Legion post 201 before being shipped overseas.

"Our community, the first development built by The Orchards Group back in 1998, is filled with generous and patriotic residents. It was amazing what we collected; we even had to fill the back of one neighbor's truck to deliver everything!" said Tom Siracusa, homeowner and organizer of the efforts.

Residents of The Orchards at Crabapple first came together to collect items back in 2009, and were so successful that they decided to do it again this year.

"It is great to know that groups in the states still recognize the sacrifices of the troops and continue to support them," said Adam L. Mortensen, lieutenant colonel for the U.S. Air Forces and Program H Mission Commander.

If you're looking for the ultimate active adult lifestyle, be sure to visit TheOrchards of East Cherokee in Woodstock and TheOrchards of Brannon Oak Farm in Cumming. Both offer low-maintenance lifestyles with plenty of amenities, community service opportunities and activities.
