Benefiting Military Families in Central Minnesota
Shoot for the Troops is a 501c3 (Id #82-2024344) non-profit organization, our mission is to support active military, veterans, and their families deployed or stateside who are in need of resources due to economic or special hardships. Shoot for the Troops hosts a trap shoot event annually to raise funds for military families in central Minnesota.
The majority of the money raised from this Shoot for the Troops event has gone to support military families that are in need of a little extra help during times of financial hardship. The Shoot for the Troops event has raised over $150,000! Contact us to learn how to get involved or your business involved with this great event in 2020!
Dear SFTT Supporters,
Over the last several years we have appreciated your enthusiastic support of Shoot for The Troops. During that time we have raised over $150,000 in support of our military families and veterans that live, work and serve in your communities. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and current CDC guidelines, the board has decided to cancel this year’s annual fundraiser at LeBlanc’s Rice Creek Game Farm which was scheduled for September 15th.
Our need to support our military communities has never been greater. The effects of COVID-19 has displaced veterans and military families due to the loss of employment leaving some unable to meet financial obligations. The demands on our Active, Reserve and National Guard members of the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard continues to challenge some to meet their financial obligations, but despite those challenges they continue fulfill their federal, state, and community needs. They are your neighbors, your classmates, your friends and families who are present in every community across the state. Just this year alone for the MN Army National Guard nearly 5,000 Soldiers of the 1st Brigade Combat Team have been preparing for a major exercise. They recently departed for the National Training Center in Fort Irwin, California where they will spend several weeks away from their families and employers. Currently Soldiers from the 34th Expeditionary Combat Aviation Brigade are deployed to Kuwait and Iraq. The 2nd Battalion, 135th Infantry Battalion recently left for Djibouti, Africa, and the 34th Military Police Company and C Battery, 1-194th Field Artillery are slated to deploy later this summer. We need your help to help our military communities.
Our annual fundraiser at Rice Creek is not only about caring, giving, and supporting our veterans and their families. It is also a wonderful time for mutual supporters of the military like you join in comradery during an event that makes it worth coming back year after year. We will miss seeing you all this year.
Last year’s effort went toward supporting, the MN Military Family Foundation, St. Cloud Stand Down, Hugo Yellow Ribbon Network, Plowing Vets and Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Memorial Fund. For those of you that wish to continue making a difference please consider making a contribution in the following manner.
