We truly believe that every deployed military member should have at least the basic essentials. It's our goal to make sure they have their daily needs met in the form of daily health & beauty needs, snacks needed, as we are not all eating 3 regular meals, a book or magazine to read & letters from home showing our appreciation & love.
Support The Troops WI was started in 2007 by one mother sending care packages to her sons overseas. After hearing from her sons when they were deployed that other soldiers did not receive mail, she was compelled to start sending boxes to others as well. The momentum continued, even when her children returned home, and Support the Troops WI was created.
We have grown from a one room operation at her home to a donated store front with many volunteers. All of the items for the care packages and postage are from donations, and to date, more than *8000* care packages have been sent to our troops deployed all around the world with their generous support. Some soldiers have families that are able to send them care packages and many do not. It is our goal to send a care package to as many of our soldiers as possible so that we can give them necessary essentials that may not be readily available, along with a bit of comfort from home. Those that already receive packages always share with others but there are many more that go without. We feel the need to continue to help those serving overseas, whether it be our own children, or someone else’s daughter, son, brother, aunt, uncle, niece or nephew.
The many thanks we get from the recipients give us the motivation and determination to continue our efforts, and we couldn't do it without all of your help and support!
