TCU Equestrian Program To Send Care Packages

FORT WORTH, Texas - With Veterans Day Sunday, the TCU equestrian program recently got into the holiday spirit by working with Fox Valley Troop Support in creating care packages to send TCU alumni and soldiers currently serving overseas.

For a second-straight year, the packages, which are called Frog Boxes, are being sent to soldiers during the upcoming holiday season. In addition, Nocona Boot Company recently donated TCU boots that are being auctioned off with all the proceeds going directly towards the cost of shipping the packages. Fans wishing to bid on the boots may do so by visiting and clicking on the auctions tab on the front page.

"I'm so proud of the team for once again coming together to pack and send these care packages to our troops serving overseas," said Hunt Seat head coach Logan Fiorentino. "Our philanthropy chairperson, Victoria Giachino has worked really hard to get this organized and has really done an outstanding job of working with the Nocona Boot Company and the Fox Valley Troop Support to put this together. We had such a positive response to this project last year that the team felt really passionate about doing it again this year. Everyone knows someone who is serving in the military and this is our small way of saying thank you to them for their service."

The Frog Boxes, which have been completely organized and planned by the Horned Frog equestrian squad, gives student-athletes a chance to let service members know that they are being cared for and are appreciated. The care packages include items such as snacks, hygienic products, puzzles/games, instant meals and other products. Each box will also have a letter from the TCU equestrian program expressing their appreciation, service and duty for our country.

TCU, who is now 3-2 on the year and 1-1 overall in the Big 12, will next be in action on Sunday, Nov. 18 at Baylor.
