Troop Support

The Troop Support Program was established to send packages to soldiers deployed in war zones. Members of our mountain community contact us with the addresses of their family and friends, and we use the Summit Daily News to help us gather easily consumed foods, toiletries, writing and reading materials, clothing, and the like. 

 Our soldiers really appreciate that we remember them

Since 2006, we have sent over 1200 packages that provide “a little bit of home” while supplementing their government-issued rations. The troops share with their buddies and report that this helps strengthen relationships and bolster morale overseas.
