If you haven't guessed it yet, our goal is to get everyone wearing RED on Friday to show support for our troops. Of course we would love to see everyone in the nation wear Red every Friday, it's a way to show each other that we stand behind our servicemen and women. More importantly we need to let our troops know we love, support and pray for them. Please take a few minutes and send them a thank you.
There are different ways that you can thank our troops and show your support. How you choose to do so is not as important as doing it. Sometimes we get so caught up with our own lives that we forget what they are going through half way around the world. Please take a few moments and let them know that you support them.
Help Bob Williams With "Support Our Troops"
“Support Our Troops” sends out about 215 boxes each week to U.S. military units in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Qatar, and Kyrgyzstan. On a daily basis we receive wish lists from the troops either via email or through their families or friends. We do our best to fulfill those requests. The basic items we take for granted here can make a real difference in the quality of life our service personnel experience when deployed in combat zones and remote locations. Receiving an unexpected box of goodies can be a tremendous morale booster for those far from home.
The packages we send out contain a variety of items popular with the troops, including coffee, snack foods, batteries, DVD’s, and personal toiletries. Some of these goods are donated by local businesses and organizations; others we must purchase to meet the need. We are delighted to work with any company or organization interested in having a drive to collect items to send to our troops or to raise funds for postage.
This is an on-going project for us so we must continue to seek help with our increasing postage expenses. The cost to ship one box can range from $20 to $45, depending on the contents and the APO or FPO address to which it is sent. Our postage costs alone run over $8,000 each month. We always have boxes packed up and ready to ship out, but often lack the necessary funds to send them.
We ask that any monetary contributions be made payable to "Postmaster" and sent to:
Support Our Troops
P. O. Box 7560
Wesley Chapel, Florida 33544
One hundred percent of funds received go directly to cover the cost of postage.
