Fifteen Marine families at Camp Lejeune, N.C., received a special token of gratitude for Christmas from employees of Sundt Construction and Andale Construction (working together as the Andale-Sundt joint venture). The team, which is building new military barracks at Camp Lejeune, donated baskets containing all of the ingredients for a complete Christmas dinner, plus a $50 gift card to use for perishable items, to each of the 15 families.
In addition to the dinner baskets, team members purchased, wrapped and delivered gifts for the 25 children in the families, which range from infants to teenagers. Together, the gifts and food baskets were valued at approximately $3,000.
“We thought it was a small price to pay to help our Marines have a better Christmas, and let them know that their service to our country is appreciated,” said Sundt Project Engineer Holly Horsak.
Andale-Sundt is building two bachelor enlisted quarters at Camp Lejeune – one at the Camp Johnson neighborhood and one at French Creek. The federal construction projects are valued at approximately $41 million and $38 million, respectively, and will be complete next summer.
