May End of the Month for a Cause: From Home to Our Heros

 

Res/Title team wearing RED: “Remember Everyone Deployed”

 

Res/Title paralegal Carol Leca, whose office is decorated with pictures of her three sons and “Proud Marine Mom” banners, is passionate about both her personal family and “work family.” Her favorite part about working at Res/Title is the comradery.

 

“Everyone here cares and asks about your life,” she said, explaining how family oriented the office is. “Everyone was curious to know when Jared was getting deployed.”

 

Her youngest son Jared, who is almost 22 years old, is currently deployed for the next six months in Japan and South Korea. He has been an active Marine for about 18 months and when he returns, may only be home about eight days.

 

“Jared wants to protect our country from those who hurt it,” she said. “It’s so admirable but so scary for us moms; it’s hard knowing that almost anything can happen.”

 

Monthly, Res/Title chooses a cause to support for our “End of the Month for a Cause.” In honor of Memorial Day and Military Appreciation Month, this May we will be working with “From Homes to Our Heros,” a homegrown organization created by Marine moms like Carol. Res/Title is helping their cause by putting together care packages to send overseas to our troops. We asked for submissions of pictures showing signs of patriotism and for every photo submitted we donated an item to the care package.

“You don’t think about troops being stuck in remote locations away from their friends and families,” she said. “Sometimes soldiers are out in the middle of the ocean or in areas where they are unable to buy what they need.”

 

The group sends care packages to marines who usually have to eat vacuumed packed meals Carol explained they send everything from beef jerky and Pringles to more useful items such as sun screen, deodorant, and razors.

Carol, who originally attended CCRI aspiring to be a nurse, has been at Res/Title 17 years. Her interest in the industry came from taking a job with an attorney where she went back to school and learned about title searches and commitments.

 

“Once you get in this business it’s hard to get out,” she explained. “You just get drawn in.”
