Shopping for Soldiers (SFS) was created in Atlanta, GA with a local classic rock radio station where we packed and delivered a thousand combination baskets to the troops in the beginning of the war in Iraq.
The baskets contained hygiene items, such as baby wipes, sunscreen, toothbrushes, and toothpaste. They also contained snacks like dried fruits and trail mixes in case the soldier was unable to return to the mess hall.
We decided to mirror this ultra-successful program upon our relocation to Palm Beach County and started with a holiday-themed basket to be given out at the VA center right before the holidays. Overall, we hand-packed and delivered over a hundred combo baskets for the older veterans.
Witnessing the success of the holiday baskets, we wanted to broaden our scope and provide programs throughout the year.
At Needs for our Troops "Our mission is to procure resources from private donors, partnering organizations, and manufacturers from throughout the country to benefit qualified veterans in Palm Beach County."
Our heartfelt thanks to Grainger for the rowing machine and Killer Spin for the ping pong table donated to our cause.
