Operation Support Our Troops needs your help now.

The packing date for the Christmas shipment is coming up on Saturday, November 18th at Pines Road Storage.

You are encouraged to get in touch with schools and clubs such as Brownies, Cub Scouts, 4-H, Sunday School classes, and classrooms and have them do some holiday artwork (not religious) to share with our troops overseas. They really enjoy hearing from the children and the artwork brightens their holidays!

They also need of collection items. You can find a list right here. This volunteer organization also needs medium sized cardboard boxes about the size of copy paper boxes for shipping. These boxes need to be as plain as possible with no advertisements, logos, or product information. So, hit up your favorite box stashes in Shreveport and Bossier City.

Another way you can help is with money to help pay shipping costs. A personal or business check in ANY amount, made out to Operation Support Our Troops, Inc, or OSOT, Inc. is tax deductible. For more information, contact us at info@osot-shreveport.org.
