Jones Lang LaSalle Supports Dallas / Fort Worth USO


DALLAS, Jan. 5, 2011 — Jones Lang LaSalle recently supported the Dallas-Fort Worth USO chapter in December at DFW International Airport. More than 35 Jones Lang LaSalle employees hosted and served a pizza luncheon for the 240 soldiers returning to the Middle East after two weeks of R&R to serve the remainder of their tour. 

“Every day, a plane full of soldiers leaves the DFW airport for either Iraq or Afghanistan,” says Scott Collier, Managing Director and Army veteran. “In serving lunch and visiting with these patriots, it made us count our blessings and offer thanks to these fine men and women. This is definitely an initiative that we’ll continue in the New Year!”

In addition, Jones Lang LaSalle donated books for the USO reading room. Departing troops who are waiting for their flights to the Middle East are encouraged to visit the “United Through Reading Room” where they can select a book, record themselves reading the book and have the book along with the DVD shipped home to their children.
