Reviews for Support Our Troops Foundation Inc

Rating: 1 stars  

Interesting how crack addicts and pill poppers can raise money for the troops coming home, I was at a local Wal-Mart to buy some shoes for my daughter. upon walking in I noticed a a rough looking female maybe in her late thirties early forties talking real low stating if I could help donate something for care packages for homeless troops, I replied "sure,when I come back out with some change" so after some shopping I was exiting the store began to approach the half-ass table display I witnessed the lady placing something in her mouth, I thought ok maybe it's meds when I finally reached the table I asked, " so how is your day?, how does SUPPORT OUR TROOPS FOUNDATION help, carepackages she stated $5 donation will go towards a one for the troops," I said that's great I will like to do a little more let me go back in and withdraw some cash, being a parent of a CORPSMAN I come back out the lady seemed spacey not intouched with reality eyes. rolling around half open, suspicious I would say I asked if she is ok she mumbled some quiet words I'm fine giggling afterwards, after realizing going with my gut instincts I did donate nothing added up. If I'm wrong and maybe the lady had a medical condition I apologize.

Do your homework before you donate to this group. They raise thousands of dollars a year pay their staff memvers and only donate about thirty care packages a year. Do the math for your self who is truely wining sure aint the troops who put their bodies on the line for freedom! And organisations like this, prey on these heros to fill pockets. I protect liberty

I worked with many of non profits in the past and have never worked with one as willing to help any soldier ( vet) with a problem if they were able too. As you know it is very hard to find some one self less enough to give countless hours to something with no payment but self satifaction. Its has been a long road and iam sure its going to get longer but I stand behind my soldiers(vets) and when I cant I will stand in front of them. SO remember Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of all who threaten it!~!!!! SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I TOO GAVE A DONATION AT A BIKE SHOW AND WAS WITH THE WOMAN WHO SAW THIS GROUP AT HOOTERS, AND THEY WERE LAUGHING ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY THEY SCAMMED. THE ONLY MISTAKE IS THE NAME IT WASNT SUPPORT OUR TROOPS, IT WAS AID OUR VETERANS FROM ESSEX MARYLAND!! THE MISTAKE WAS MADE BEACUSE BOTH GROUPS ATTENDED THE EVENT AND BOTH GROUPS HAD FLAGS THAT READ "SUPPORT OUR TROOPS" BUT THE SUPPORT OUR TROOPS FOUNDATION HAD ACTUALLY RETIRED VETS, THE "AID OUR VETERANS" GROUPS DIRECTOR OF CHARITABLE GIVING SUZETTE STEELE HAS SEVERAL FELONY THEFT CHARGES, INCLUDING CHECK FRAUD ALONG WITH THE PRESIDENT OF AOV THEY BOTH HAVE SEVERAL FELONY THEFT CHARGES. UNFORTUNATLY ACCORDING TO THE SECRETARY OF STATE ITS NOT ILLEGAL TO SIT ON THE BOARD OF A NON-PROFIT WITH SUCH CHARGES, HOWEVER THE "SUPPORT OUR TROOPS ORGANIZATION BOARD OF DIRECTORS HAS NO CRIMINAL RECORDS AT ALL AND FROM WHAT I SAW THEY CONDUCTED THEMSELFES IN A PROFESSIONAL MANNER, ITS UNFORTUNATE THAT THE CONFUSION WAS MADE HOPE PREVIOS COMMENTS DID NOT HURT THE SUPPORT OUR TROOPS GROUP SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION, WATCH OUT FOR THE AID OUR VETERANS SCAMMERS!!!

I FORE WARN ANYONE WHOM GIVES TO THIS ORGANIZATION THEY ARE VERY SHADY AND UN WILLING TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON THIER ORGANIZATION SUCH AS WHERE THE MONEY GOES? WHY THEY HAVE SELF PROCLAIMED DRUG ADDICTS AS PART OF THEIR "VOLUNTEER" STAFF. I AM AN FEMALE EMPLOYEE OF A PROMOTIONAL COMPANY ADVANSTARr OPERATIONS MANAGER TO BE EXACT. WHILE WALKING AROUND CHECKING ON EXHIBTORS AT A NATIONAL MOTORCYCLE EVENT SAN MATEO CA. I APPROACHED SUPPPORT OUR TROOPS FOUNDATION'S BOOTH ONLY TO BE UNCOMFORTABLY TOUCHED BY ONE OF THEIR VOLUNTEERS BY THE NAME "DON" HE WAS ACTING LIKE A RUDE ARROGNANT MALE CHAUVINIST INDIVIDUAL, I MADE A COMPLAINT REPORT TO MY HIGHER UPS HOPEFULLY THIS ISSUE IS ADDRESSED SOON.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
