Whether you choose to join our team of volunteers and adopt a soldier, collect items for care packages, shop from our Amazon Wish List of needed items, or make a financial contribution, please know that your generous act is helping to make the life of someone better.
Your simple gesture can brighten the day of a soldier serving our country 7,000 miles away, or it can help a struggling military family at the Holidays.
Your generosity can help our Service Members and Veterans know that they are appreciated and are not forgotten.
Friends Of The Troops is always actively seeking new volunteers to join us in helping to support our service members and Veterans.
We need volunteers to help us with the following:
"Adopt" a service member for the duration of his or her deployment by sending them monthly care packages and occasional cards of support
Pack and mail occasional care packages to service members
Send cards of appreciation and encouragement to our active duty troops and to Veterans
Participate in various events and represent our organization across the country.
All volunteers wishing to join Friends Of The Troops must undergo a simple criminal background check and a check against the terror watch list prior to receiving any name or address of any service member. This is solely to protect the safety of our service members and to ensure that their sensitive information does not fall into the wrong hands.

Whether donating as an individual or on a corporate level, Friends Of The Troops gratefully accepts donations of items that can be packed in care packages.
While there is always a need for hygiene and toiletry items (both full and travel size), our greatest need is for pre-packaged and shelf-stable food and snack items.
We ask that you only donate items that are brand new and have not expired. Our service members deserve only the very best.
Contact us if you would like to make a donation in the Chattanooga, Tennessee area to arrange a pick up. Donations in other areas may be directed to either our headquarters in Tennessee or to one of our nearest regional representatives.
We highly encourage church groups, school groups, scout troops, businesses, and social clubs and benevolent organizations work with us to coordinate donation drive events.
We love to see communities come together to support the troops!
To donate items, contact us at (423) 599-9901 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Without financial donations we cannot continue our mission to support those service members who so desperately need it.
Your generous donation will not only help to provide packages of comfort to those deployed abroad and will also help us to reach and support the two-thirds of our military located stateside, who are forgotten and ignored by other organizations.
These stateside service members may be single, young troops stationed far away from family and friends, military families needing assistance with occasional items such as diapers, or they may be new recruits in basic training or members of reserve, guard or active duty units in between deployments.
Not only will your donation help these deployed and stateside service members, but it will also help to ensure that no military child in need goes without a gift at the Holidays.
All donors receive a receipt for their donation from our organization. Friends Of The Troops is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and all donations made to it are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
