HOME AWAY FROM HOME: The P&G House was featured on this morning’s episode of NBC’s “Today,” with NBC’s Jenna Bush Hager noted it has become a "home away from home for the families of the 10,000 competing athletes during the Games.” Bush Hager was given a tour of the house by Roslyn Eaton, mother of U.S. decathlete Ashton Eaton. Bush Hager said, “How awesome is it that there’s a place like this that supports the moms.” Rosalyn Eaton said it is an "amazing place where we can get our laundry done and eat.” Bush Hager said the meals provided there take a "financial strain off the Olympic experience.” There also is a Gillette-sponsored “Mancave for dads, Team USA viewing party and even birthday celebrations.” Hager Bush: “A place of support for the families who have given so much” ("Today,” NBC, 8/9).
