This holiday season, 10News WTSP is teaming up with the charity Support the Troops to collect supplies for troops stationed overseas. We will be collecting items through December 31st.

According to Support the Troops, these are the 5 most requested items.

  1. Toothpaste
  2. Razors
  3. White Tube Socks
  4. Beef Jerky
  5. Gum

Support the Troops will ship the supplies to troops serving in Afghanistan. The boxes are a tremendous day brightener to the men and women stationed so far away from their families.

You can drop off donations at the 10News studios at 11450 Gandy Boulevard, St. Petersburg or at the following Sonny’s BBQ locations:
