Holiday Packing Event

160 BOXES PACKED AT THE EVENT!!
More arrived over the weekend, and by the time we are through, MORE THAN 300 boxes will be shipped for the holidays!!!

Our Holiday Packing Event was hosted this year by American Legion Post 273 on beautiful Madeira Beach, Florida. Tampa Bay Troop Support has found a new home by invite from the Legion Commander and the Ladies Auxiliary. We have had three very successful events there, and look forward to many more. I want to give a huge note of thanks to all of those involved in making Tampa Bay Troop Support feel welcomed, and again to those who came out to support our event!

We had our usual packing of goodies, candy, snacks, books, magazines, toiletries, you name it, it was on the tables ready to be shipped! As the day started, there were dozens of volunteers coming in to bring goods and help us pack the boxes. A big thank you to the Ladies Auxiliary for collecting goods and coming out to help, and to the Legion Commander - Jim White - who also gave us $500 in donations toward our shipping! There were also a lot of other companies and groups who helped with donations of goods, shipping, and support as well; MBA, Pinellas County School Board, Freedom Sales & Marketing, Clearwater Threshers, Tampa Bay Rays, Cross Components, Largo Area Historical Society, Silicon Systems, Great Clips Bardmoor, Madeira Beach Brown Boxer, Biff Burger, Kimberly Harker, Melanie Rivera, and many many more.

Sending a Piece of Home to The People Who Keep it Free



T
hat's Our Simple Mission.

The Tampa Bay Troop Support group was born out of a common desire to show our appreciation and respect for our Soldiers while they are stationed overseas, away from their home, their friends, and their families. We originally started out as a group of friends from Seminole High School, and founded the Seminole Alumni Troop Support group. As word spread, we quickly grew to a solid group of friends that gathered a few times a year to pack boxes to send overseas. Within a year, our new 'family' included folks from all over the Tampa Bay Area and the USA!

Tampa Bay Troop PackingSo that we could be more inclusive of our new members, and more geographically recognized, we officially changed our name to Tampa Bay Troop Support. All of our packing, goods, and shipping are 100% donation from our members and their friends and families. We are an official 501c3 organization, and with that, we plan to increase our ability to reach more Soldiers with a little bit of home.

Our hope is to make a small difference in the lives of our Soldiers by sending care packages to many different units and places. These packages contain things like cards, letters, snacks, personal products, music, magazines, anything to send a little bit of home to a Soldier who is half a world away. We want them to know that they are in our thoughts and we appreciate everything they do. A few times a year, our group meets to pack and send these boxes to the Soldiers.

As long as they are out there, we will be here, and as long as we can keep bringing the donations and supplies in, we will keep shipping them to those True American Heroes.

We appreciate your support! If you would like to help out, please join us at any of our packing events, or donate via PayPal by clicking the button on our page.
