A request to the people of Trophy Club to help support our brave men and women serving to protect our cherished freedoms.

Trophy Club has been a member of the America Supporting Americans (ASA) Adopt-A-Unit program since 2005 as a way for the community to give back to the military men and women who bravely serve our country. Recently, ASA has been revitalized and a new ASA Liaison was appointed by the Town Council. Trophy Club community members can once again support our unit in a variety of ways!

As a member Town, Trophy Club adopted Delta FSC, 1-32 Cavalry, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101 Airborne Division (Air Assault) on December 10, 2010. A detachment of the brave men and women of this Unit is currently deployed to Forward Operating Bases in Afghanistan. The troop’s leadership has notified our ASA Liaison of an immediate need for:

  • toothpaste
  • deodorant
  • shampoo
  • soap
  • body wash

Being located in very austere areas of Afghanistan, their access to very simple everyday items is greatly restricted. All deployed soldiers are male, so gender specific items should be for men. Additionally, it has been mentioned that any homemade cards from the children of Trophy Club are always appreciated and well received by the soldiers.

If you are able to purchase any of the mentioned items for donation, provide monetary support, or your children would enjoy making cards for our soldiers, every effort would be greatly appreciated. Please drop off items and cards at the Svore Municipal Building located at 100 Municipal Drive or make monetary donations to the "Red, White and Blue 76262" account at First Financial Bank located at 95 Trophy Club Drive (across from clock tower).

Thank You so much for your donations in support of our adopted Unit. Please check the Trophy Club Website periodically for updates on ASA and the soldiers that we support. If you have any questions, please e-mail the ASA Liaison at redwhiteandblue76262@gmail.com.
