$5,000 to the Montana Military Family Relief Fund Featured

Written by SOT Staff

MontanaGuardPatchMarch 5, 2014: Support Our Troops® is privileged to have recently provided a $5,000 contribution to the Montana Military Family Relief Fund. The MMFRF assists Montana families defray the impact of costs of living on military families during deployment. SOT® state director Jake Eaton said bolstering the families of those serving is one of the most important things Americans can do as their part of protecting our freedoms. In February the Montana Army National Guard's 189th General Support Aviation Battalion returned home from eleven months in Kuwait. Around the first of March members of the Montana Army National Guard 143rd military police unit deployed to Afghanistan for one year. Keeping Americans safe at home is a continual job, and supporting those who do is a large part of the effort.

Heat for the Kids! SOT Funds Backup Generator Featured

Written by SOT Staff

IdahoYouthChalleNGe2014 January 2014 - Support Our Troops® was glad to team up with Live Laugh Love®, one of our our Patriotic Partners,  and push the Idaho Youth ChalleNGe Academy over the finish line this January, kicking in the funds necessary to purchase a large 30kw emergency backup generator. The Academy is located in Pierce, Idaho, at the northern end of the power grid and where it can get awfully cold. The generator enables the  school to open with its first compliment of 140 high school students, assured that during power interruptions the school will remain habitable.

Launched under an umbrella DoD initiative, the Idaho Youth ChalleNGe Academy  is a volunteer program for 16 to 18 year old teens who are at risk of dropping out or have already dropped out of high school. The program is open to all students and incorporates a highly structured format, with an emphasis on student discipline and personal responsibility, to provide a positive, safe, and secure learning environment.

The Christmas Gift Featured

Written by Martin Boire

Christmas2013SOTDecember 20, 2013-

In the course of human events it is often difficult to divine the overall arrangement of things and what is to come. In the midst of chaos lies uncertainly. Each day brings earth-shifting news and unsure footing. Then comes that small act, that small deed which shines, and affodrs not just hope but certain knowledge that when one cuts through the scatter of the current milieu, the fundamentals are just fine. That bright things are yet to come.

WattssThe goal of a service project is to realize that we should shift our focus from ourselves and to focus on positively impacting others. And Watt’s has exhibited this spirit! Through the month of November, students participated in a coupon collection that benefits the TROOPONS® program.

TROOPONS® is an amazing program! Coupons can be used on overseas military bases for up to six months past their expiration date. Many military families rely on donated coupons to help offset the expense of living overseas. Shopping abroad can be especially tough for military families. Donated coupons can make a difference!

On the evening of December 5th, students from We Serve Too, Watts Leadership, Meet in the Middle, PALS (Clemens and Steele), staff, and parents came together to sort the many coupons into four categories: food, non-food, pet, and baby items.

Watts set a goal of collecting 6,500 coupons, but quickly exceeded that goal! In just a few weeks, the students were able to collect 42,185 coupons! With an average savings of $1.00 per coupon, that is $42,185 in savings for our Military friends. This shows that when a group comes together for the same cause, anything can happen! Watts hopes that this story will inspire you to make a difference in someone’s life. Who knows where it could lead?
