Treats for Troops at Floor Trader Outlet
Many of our troops overseas do not have the resources to travel off base for simple supplies, so one local business is here to help.
The Floor Trader Outlet on the Gulf Coast is calling upon the community for their Treats for Troops donation drive. Supplies such as toothbrushes, foot powder, instant coffee, stick deodorant, and gum are just a few suggestions.
Floor Trader Outlet stores in Gulfport, Gautier, and Mobile have donation boxes in the front of the stores which organizers hope to fill during the month of May. Floor Trader Outlet Co-owner Vicki Rhodes said, “I know how important these men and women are and you know they’re away from home. When they’re overseas they’re away from home, their families, their friends, and all. It’s really tough then they come back and it’s a different lifestyle and it’s hard to adjust so it’s real important we show our appreciation.”
You can visit the Floor Trader Gulf Coast Facebook page for a full list of supplies you can donate.
