About Unite for Troops
Unite for Troops/Veteran’s Day Celebration is an annual one day event where we invite our community, both in person and on line, to join us in support of our Armed Military Forces past and present. This free event is filled with music, food, kids activities and more. Our purpose is to help our deployed Troops through donations of much needed comfort items and letters, then ship them to the USO’s in Afghanistan. They are then distributed to a hospital, wounded care center and our troops on the front lines. We also honor our Veterans and their families on that day for the great sacrifice they have made for our Freedom.
Send a letter of encouragement
Often our words are the best gift we can share with those so far from home. When we ask our troops what is most needed, the first thing asked for is letters. They not only give our troops moral support while serving overseas but continue to offer comfort when they return home. We’ve received a lot of feedback from the recipients of our care packages who have shared impactful stories on how our letters and supplies gave them encouragement during a time where they needed it the most.
Sponsor a Care Package
If you aren’t local to Dallas, TX there is still a way to participate and create a huge impact for our troops. By sponsoring the postage for at least one care package, we will be able to send it directly to Afghanistan to benefit those who need it most including our wounded and front line forces. A $20 donation will cover the cost of shipping and benefit our troops overseas in so many ways. Every penny of all financial donations received will go directly to the cost of shipping. We appreciate all the help we can get.
