Toilet Seats Make a DifferenceBy
American Standards ships toilets seats to military base in Kabul, Afghanistan
Jeff Delling, a US Army soldier, noticed the shortage of toilet seats at his military base in Kabul, Afghanistan, where he is currently stationed. Jeff recently reached out to the customer service team through the American Standard website with a special request; toilet seats to cover the “extreme shortage” at the base noting that, at that moment, only one in every 5 toilets actually had a seat.
“It’s one of those details you don’t think of,” Karen Reiker, AS Customer Service Representative, said of the modest request. She quickly forwarded the request and the donation was approved without hesitation. Within a week, ten American Standard toilet seats were shipped to the military base in Kabul, Afghanistan, much to the appreciation of those serving the United States overseas.
The swift action of Karen Reiker, Chris Hopwo and the Customer Service Team highlights American Standard Brands’ employee’s dedication to giving back to those who put their lives at risk serving the our country.
Great job Karen, Chris and team!!
