Yard Sale For The Troops has recently gained nonprofit 501(c)(3) status!!
Is located at Howard’s Flea Market Main Aisle #178
Saturday and Sunday – 8 am until 2 pm
Rain or shine!
YARD SALE FOR THE TROOPS sells gently used donations and with the proceeds, makes CARE PACKAGES for our Troops overseas. As the items are donated, we never know from week to week what we will receive…but we can assure you it is all quality items with a low price. Our prices are low because we would rather sell it to you than have it sit on our tables. OUR GOAL IS TO SEND PACKAGES!! The Troops are here to ask for your Support. Did you know that we currently have troops away from home in over 130 Countries! There will always be a need for care packages. So because of that, I believe there should be a Yard Sale For The Troops Thrift Store in every County, of every State
Our mission is simple: Get care packages into the hands of Soldiers overseas that are in need of some comforts of home. To the Troops that need to be reminded that America has not forgotten them and appreciates every sacrifice they are making. The way we plan to get there is to become the organization everyone wants to associate with. To be the place everyone takes their donated items. And to be the place everyone goes to buy great items at a great price and feel great about their purchase
Following are some of the items requested by our Troops: Instant Oatmeal Breakfast Bars Drink Mix Hard Candy Instant Coffee Tea Bags Gum Slim Jims Beef Jerky Canned Foods (No Pork) Peanut Butter Crackers and Cheese/Peanut Butter Cocoa/Hot Chocolate Mix Healthy Snacks Cough Drops Eye Drops Chap Stick Tooth Paste Tooth Brushes Mouth Wash Dental Floss Razors (Men’s and Woman’s) Shave Cream Pain Reliever Bar Soap Shampoo Conditioner Deodorant Wet Wipes Woman’s Hygiene Products Foot Powder Cotton Swabs Body Wash Hair Scrunches (Dark) Dark Hair Clips Hair Products for Black Soldiers Writing Paper/Envelopes Pens/Pencils Cards to Send to Family Batteries (AA & AAA) Flashlights Battery Operated Alarm Clocks Flea Collars Calendars CD’s DVD’s Playing Cards Games Puzzle Books Fleece Caps Often a Troop will ask for something specific like laundry pods, but generally its the items above. Ask to see our list of items requested by the soldiers receiving the next boxes. We hope this gives you an idea of the things we need donated by our generous local businesses and neighbors. Thanks, Dorene, Jeff & Janet
