As we reach the heart of the summer season, we are eager to share some fantastic happenings at MTT with our valued community. It takes a village to make a difference, and we are incredibly grateful for the support you’ve shown us.

April 14: A Foundation Set in Stone

We were incredibly honored to have Mayor Wood and the City of Mishawaka think of us in their city-wide brick sales in April. These bricks, each symbolizing a tangible piece of support from the community, are a testament to our shared commitment to serving our troops. Your support through this endeavor strengthens the foundation of our mission and highlights the power of unity in our community.

We want to take a moment to express our profound appreciation to our supporters who participated in the brick sale initiative. Your purchase of these bricks is more than a monetary contribution; it’s a symbol of your belief in our mission, an affirmation of your support for our troops, and a testament to the power of community solidarity. Every single brick you bought is helping to lay the foundation of a more vital, supportive Troop Town. Each brick, imprinted with your goodwill, forms a path forward for us to continue providing essential services to our troops. Thank you for standing with us, brick by brick, as we build towards a brighter future.

June 24: Support from VFW Post 88 Auxiliary

We sincerely thank the VFW Post 88 Auxiliary for their generous monetary donation in June. With your support, we’re inching closer to our next exciting phase, a testament to the impact we can make together.

4th of July: Celebrating with a Touch of Patriotism

This 4th of July, we celebrated Independence Day with a fantastic draw for a patriotic afghan, lovingly handcrafted by Carol Dove. This beautifully woven piece, full of warmth and symbolism, helped us raise almost $1,000. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Carol for her creative contribution, which will directly help further our cause.

Upcoming Plans:

As we conclude our site preparation and move toward construction, we’re thrilled to share our upcoming plans for Mishawaka Troop Town:

“Building from the strong foundation laid by the community’s support comes a space encapsulating unity, comfort, and security. We envision the town as a beacon of hope and help, equipped with various amenities catering to the diverse needs of our troops. The construction will involve erecting community spaces for social interaction, comfortable living quarters for rest, and dedicated counseling and support services areas. We are working diligently with architects, engineers, and community planners to ensure that every aspect of the town reflects the spirit of camaraderie and resilience that our troops embody. This is a labor of love for all of us, and we’re excited to bring this vision to life with your continued support.”

We want to thank you and our community; whether through donations, participating in our events, or spreading the word about our cause, every contribution brings us one step closer to making a significant difference in the lives of our troops. As we look to the future, we are excited about the opportunities ahead and are continually inspired by the dedication and generosity of supporters like you.

Follow us on Facebook for more updates, and remember, every brick, every dollar, and every stitch weaves us into the fabric of our community, moving us closer to our shared vision of a thriving Troop Town.

Thank you for being a part of our journey.
