Come out and pack for our local deployed troops, no experience needed! It will make you feel good as you start your last weekend of Christmas and Holiday preparations.

How you can help

Each month MOTS sends between 35 and 50 care packages to troops who are serving our country and have ties to Manatee and/or Sarasota. Some of the items are donated by local businesses, schools and churches, but some items such as the much needed protein items are purchased by MOTS. The shipping cost for a single box to the Middle East is over $15.00

In addition MOTS supports the troops and families back home by helping them with cash or gift cards depending upon their needs.
