Support Our Soldiers-CT

Support Our Soldiers/SOS-Connecticut is sponsoring a “Support our Troops” with a Halloween candy and dental supplies collection and packing event, Sunday, October 2, 2022, 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., at Hillstown Grange Hall, 617 Hills Street, East Hartford.

       We will sort and pack items to send to our Soldiers who will miss Halloween and Thanksgiving with family and friends.  Many Soldiers are in quarantine making these holidays even lonelier.  

      This is our Halloween treat boxes so any cards, drawings and letters to the Troops to place in the boxes would be great, especially pumpkins and apples drawings from schools. Several boxes will be for our women troops with a special request of feminine needs that are non-aerosol; such as shampoo and conditioners; pads; hair brushes and combs, etc. 

    Volunteers are needed to sort and pack.    We always try to collect dental supplies to include in our boxes. We are running low on names and addresses of Soldiers stationed overseas, so if you know one please let me know.  Also postage for this event is about $1000 and donations are needed to cover that and checks can be made out to SOS-Connecticut and mailed to SOS-CT c/o Frank Forrest, 165 Maple Street, East Hartford, CT 06118.

     This is a great event to support our Troops stationed away from home for the Holidays and organizations that are interested in helping, please contact us.   

     For more information, to donate merchandise in advance of the event, or to volunteer, call Frank Forrest at 860-690-2845 -
