Programs: Monthly "We Care" packages prepared and sent to our troops overseas, covering ALL world theaters and ALL branches of the military. FSO is always educating the public of the importance of our troops, community involvement and ways to help our mission. We are always in need of Donated Care Package items, Letters of encouragement (We have an educators link on website under Help dropdown), Volunteers and Funds !!!
Our thrift store that was opened last year accepts gently used items for us to generate funds for our mission, and to also be able to provide FREE furniture and household items to many of our homeless veterans who have recently transitioned and have received housing.
and letters of encouragement in order to provide support to our deployed service members and their families serving in the United States Military. Our main focus is to reach those with our monthly “We Care” packages who receive little or no support from the home front. We aim to send “that little bit of
home” to assure they are not forgotten. Forgotten Soldiers Outreach is committed to our U.S. servicemen
and women in all world theaters, for as long as they are deployed. In 2013, we extended our mission to
offer support to our returning soldiers in need and our veterans in need who have recently transitioned via programs into living on their own. FSO Furniture & Thrift Store assists with providing free furnishings and household items to fit their needs.
Since we opened our FSO Furniture & Thrift Store in 2013, we have benefited over 120 Military Veteran families in need throughout Palm Beach County by providing them with Free Furniture and household items and necessities. These families have recently been homeless and have transitioned through programs into their own homes.
