Unite For Troops

Unite For Troops Unite For Troops - SHOW THEM YOU CARE A 501c3 nonprofit inviting the public to collect supplies and support for our troops year round. November 9th, 2019 there is a one day family fun event to bring supplies for our troops and honor our veterans.
Unite for troops is a one day drive held in Irving, TX to collect necessities for deployed troops and to honor all of our Veteran's who have sacrificed to make our country free. This year we are paying a special tribute to our Vietnam Vets. Our fun eventful day includes stage entertainment all day, kids activities and great food - BBQ, Hot Dogs and homemade ice-cream. Kids activities include a costume contest, games, petting zoo, face painting, reptile exhibit and so much more. Since 2001 we've invited the DFW community to join us in collecting needed items for those serving overseas and their families. There is a list of requested items such as letters, snacks, toiletries, unbreakable Christmas ornaments and new children's books. A full list of items can be found on our website, unitefortroops.com We hope you can participate and make this year another successful year! All items we collect will go directly in the hands of the brave men and women of our military. These items will be delivered directly to two USO's stationed in Kandahar and Balad Afghanistan as well as deploying military from DFW Airport.
