Summer Packing Event

125 BOXES PACKED AND ON THEIR WAY!!

For those who live in Florida, you know our spring time weather can be anything imaginable. For those that were at our spring packing event, you got to see our spring weather at its finest! It was cool, breezy, and sunny. Could not have asked for better weather to hold our outdoor event. Prior to this event, I had only driven by Freedom Lake Park. The 50 foot majestic flag waving in the breeze and the F-16 in mid-takeoff were always visible from the road, and always made for a beautiful sight. Thanks to the generosity of the City of Pinellas Park, the City Council, and Mayor Sandra Bradbury, we were able to hold our event at the park at no cost, and with the Mayor herself in attendance!

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 finally have received our official status as a 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.

Thank you!
