Summer Packing Event

51 BOXES PACKED AT THE EVENT!!
More arrived over the last two weeks, and more boxes were packed, and now 76 BOXES HAVE BEEN SHIPPED OUT!!

Our Summer Packing Event was hosted this year by the American Legion Post 273 in beautiful Maderia Beach, FL. Our event had a bit lighter turnout than previous summer events because this year, we tried to have it before Mothers Day, and ended up with some pretty stiff competition from other events. Cinco de Mayo parties, the Kentucky Derby, several biker events and rides, etc. All in all, we still had a great time and had many great folks out there helping us do what we do.

We had our usual packing of goodies, candy, snacks, books, magazines, toiletries, all on the tables ready to be packed and shipped! At the start of the day, 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 donations and coming out to help, and to the Blue Star Moms who also gave us lots of goods and dontations, and came to help pack the boxes. We had help from other organizations as well; WellCare (who packed and shipped out ten boxes for us from their facility!). St. Dunstan's Angelican Church donated lots of goodies and a VERY generous donation check to help with our shipping! Many more folks also came to help pack and brought goods, and we thank you!

Welcome Home 1LT Ryan Berg!

Group News

On June 2nd, we got the honor of welcoming home another one of "our guys". 1LT Ryan Berg, commander of the Florida Army National Guard's 856th Quartermaster Support Company and the rest of his unit arrived back after nearly a year in Afghanistan. We were there with family and friends to welcome them home and thank them for their service.  Another surprise was in store as Ryan presented our founder Dave Dabney with a flag for the group on behalf of his company in Afghanistan.  Thank you for your service, Ryan!  We're happy we could send you and your crew a piece of home!

Full Throttle Magazine invited Tampa Bay Troop Support to their 17th Anniversary party at Quaker Steak & Lube.

They also gave us a great booth location on the main area (free!), and the proceeds from the 50/50 raffle too!  As a result we raised well over $300 for the day!! This will ship another 22 boxes over to our troops overseas.
THANK YOU!

A big thanks to our own Lt. "Redneck" Ryan Berg and Full Throttle Magazine's Al "Dew" Swetay for making this happen! We look forward to working with Full Throttle again in future shows. These folks at Full Throttle Magazine are truly great people and tremendous supporters of both our troops, and the biker community.

So I want everyone to go visit the Florida Full Throttle web page, and they are on Facebook too. Let them know how much we appreciate what they did for us! Let them know you heard about their support to our great effort!
