I have two step children that have been in the Navy for 6+ years. Summit Supports Our Troops has been great to them and very nice for us as a family as well. My step children received care packages, savings bonds, letters and photos from chldren/students in town, feild passes to a Jets game, and much more. My step daughter even had a personal visit from Chris Truhe during one of her cruises! This organization really brings a piece of home directly to our children and truely makes them feel valued and important within the community.
This exceptional organization reminds us daily of the importance of remembering and honoring the men and women who serve in our armed forces. With their help, the soldiers receive reminders of how appreciative we are for all that they do each day to preserve freedoms everywhere. Each year when my fourth grade class decides what special charity or nonprofit they want to raise money for, SSOT is among the top choices. They are actively involved in our community, reaching out to remind us of the importance of their important mission.
what is remarkable about this organization is its enthusiastic commitment has continued for so long. They are a constant reminder of our service men and women overseas.
I became involved in S.S.O.T. after my son joined the Marine Corp. It warmed my heart the first time I volunteered for a packing to see so many people, unrelated, of all ages, many of whom did not have a family member currently serving our Country. The emotions I felt that day through watching members of my community joyfully turn a good deed toward young people like my son, who have given so fully to their Country; cemented my commitment in supporting this organization.
This year, my 5th grade Girl Scout troop wanted to collect DVDs and CDs to send to the U.S. Troops. When we turned to Summit Supports Our Troops for assistance, they jumped in wholeheartedly to help us. Not only did they supply us with collection kiosks, but they came to pick up the collection and sent them to the deserving U.S. troops! In addition, for a few years now, SSOT has given all the Girl Scout Troops in Summit a way to send the hundreds of GS Cookie boxes the scouts have solicited for the U.S. Troops during the cookie selling season! Just think how special it must be for all those soldiers to receive and enjoy a "taste of home"!
I along with my church youth group have worked with Summit Supports Our Troops for the past several years. Specifically, we have helped with packing for "Take our Troops to the Movies." This is a fabulous organization where every little bit of help is appreciated. The kids and I always feel great after having worked with SSOT and helping our troops.
Our son's good friend is a Marine that has served in Iraq twice and is currently in Afganistan. He has told us how greatful he is for the letters of support and the food care packages.
Great organization helping a lot of men and women who proudly serve our country with big plans to help many more people in the future. I am very proud to be affiliated with this organization.
This organization provides a very direct connection between the donor and the recipient. It is also very active in our community and engaged in spreading the message of support for troops as human beings and neighbors, regardless of political persuasion. I am delighted to be a small part of such a worthwhile endeavor. I believe the organization deserves recognition for putting people first, for uniting neighbors, for putting a face in front of the message of solidarity for our troops.
What a wonderful organization!!! Every community should have a group that "Supports Our Troops". It is a tribute to the volunteers and the community of Summit to show our troops that we care and keep them in our hearts and prayers.
