Support Our Troops Program

Operation Holiday Cheer
We are in need of donations  and monetary contributions for our holiday shipment. 
Support Our Troops volunteers recently shipped 31 boxes to 430 troops in Afghanistan.  As always happens, the great joy in providing support for those serving in harm’s way leaves our cupboards bare and our bank account significantly diminished. We now have about six weeks to once again gather enough goods and cash to send out our Holiday Shipment on November 17. 

We can use small hand sanitizers, lip balm, tooth brushes, tooth paste, deodorant, small packages of wet wipes, holiday decorations, candy canes, and cards and letters. A complete list of all the items we accept is available here, or from the Clerk’s office at Village Hall, 501 U.S. Highway 1, North Palm Beach, FL 33408. Donations for the holiday shipment can be dropped off at the Clerk’s office until November 14.

Monetary contributions are needed to purchase requested items and cover shipping costs. Postage for our last shipment on October 1st totaled over $2,500. Checks can be made out to Support Our Troops USA, Inc. and mailed to P.O. Box 14211, North Palm Beach, FL 33408, or sent to the Clerk’s office. Support Our Troops USA, Inc. is a 501(C)3 charitable organization, so all donations are tax deductible. We are an all-volunteer organization with all proceeds going to supporting our troops! Thanks for your continued support!

For more information, please contact the Clerk’s office at 561-841-3355.

Our Mission

To support and lift the spirits of our military men and women

About the Program

Volunteers with the NPB Support Our Troops program have incorporated as Support Our Troops USA, Inc. a 501C3 not-for-profit corporation. Support Our Troops USA, Inc. is dedicated to providing support for U.S. service men and women by supplying goods and services that demonstrate we care and appreciate their sacrifice.

The Village of North Palm Beach, in partnership with Support Our Troops USA, Inc., continues its mission to demonstrate our concern and raise morale by sending individual care packages and bulk items to our adopted and fostered military units.

  1. How You Can Help
  2. What We Do

Monetary Contributions

Our postage costs average $1,200 per shipment due to the amount of items we send to our units. Collecting monetary donations provides the only way to ship items and purchase requested items. Please make your check payable to Support Our Troops USA, Inc. You may deliver your contribution to the Village Clerk's office or mail it to:
Support Our Troops USA, Inc.
P.O. Box 14211
North Palm Beach FL 33408

Organize Your Own Donation Drive

Ask your co-workers to donate an item or make a monetary contribution. Request that your church or place of employment allow you to place a donation box on premises. Find a business who will partner with you for a donation drive or donate needed items to our program.

Write Cards to Soldiers

Soldiers appreciate personal notes and cards more than anything else we send.  Organize a card writing drive.  Deliver cards to the Village Clerk's office and we will include them in the soldier's care packages.

Our History

The Village of NPB passed a resolution in November 2006 to adopt a military unit serving in Iraq through (ASA) America Supporting Americans, which was formed for the primary purpose of linking active military units with cities in order to establish a supportive connection between soldiers and communities.

Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC), 2nd Battalion, 27th Infantry, 3rd Brigade, 25th Infantry Division became our newly adopted unit.

Local residents and area citizens asked us to help support their soldier - their loved one - serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our volunteers were thrilled to help!

In January 2008, our Village Council agreed to foster the HHC 1st Battalion, 27th Infantry Wolfhounds nicknamed the "Outlaws." This was exciting news to our volunteers as our newly fostered group is the companion unit to our HHC 2nd Battalion, 27th Infantry Wolfhounds nicknamed the "Hooligans."

The North Palm Beach Support Our Troops program has exceeded all expectations in the years since the Village Council formally adopted the HHC, 2-27 Inf., 3rd BDE, 25 ID. We continue to accept donations and monetary contributions are gratefully accepted to help offset shipping costs and to purchase additional supplies for our adopted soldiers.
