We Support the Troops Benefit Will Help Fill Care Packages for Soldiers

The We Support the Troops (WSTT) organization will hold its first annual fundraiser, 5-9 p.m. Oct. 13 at the Solvang Veterans Memorial Building, 1745 Mission Drive.

Held in conjunction with the Santa Barbara Veterans Foundation, the event will feature live music by the Low-Down Dudes, full barbecue meal, beer, wine, and a silent auction.

We Support the Troops fills more than 100 care packages every month for U.S. troops around the world. These include canine soldiers.

The boxes are stuffed with necessities and little luxuries with personalized letters to all the recipients. With some 50 volunteers, the goods and products are spread out on tables, then packed in U.S. Postal Service flat-rate boxes.

Each month, WSTT receives wonderful letters of thanks from the soldiers and occasionally soldiers will stop by and thank the volunteers in person. Personalized letters are placed to the recipients in each box.

We Support the Troops can use help from community members to raise funds to buy all the items it will need for the coming holiday season.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
