Shopping for Soldiers (SFS) was created in Atlanta, Georgia with a local classic rock radio station where we packed and delivered a thousand combination baskets to the troops in the beginning of the Iraq War.
The baskets contained hygiene items such as baby wipes, sunscreen, tooth brushes and toothpaste. They also contained snack foods like dried fruit and trail mix in case the soldier was unable to return to the mess hall.
We decided to mirror this ultra successful program upon our relocation to Palm Beach County and started with a holiday themed basket to be given out at the VA right before the Holidays. In all, we hand packed and delivered over a hundred combo baskets for the older veterans.
Witnessing the success of the Holiday baskets, we wanted to broaden our scope and provide programs throughout the year.
