Spring Packing Event

72 BOXES PACKED AND ON THEIR WAY!!

(Final count was over 85 boxes to our heroes overseas!)

Last year, we had some guests from the Young Men's Service League of South Tampa attend several packing events. At one event, they said they would like to host one of our events sometime. We discussed the details, and we booked the Spring Packing Event 2014 to be hosted by the YMSL - and it was going to be hosted in South Tampa. This would be the first event Tampa Bay Troop Support held across the bay.

When the morning of the event came, it was foggy, rainy, cold, and we found out that there was a pirate krewe event that was being planned for later in the day in that same area. It looked like it might be a light turn out because of all these factors. Wow were we wrong! This event was a tremendous success!

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 working hard to finalize our status as a 501c3 organization 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.
