SOT Sponsors 8th Annual Veteran’s Week Fundraiser

Eddie Peters

Support Our Troops Arizona (SOT–AZ) is a nonprofit charitable organization and an Arizona nonprofit corporation. The mission is to provide for the material, physical, and emotional needs of our military men and women, active, reserve, and retired, at home and abroad. Volunteers provide emergency, urgent, and immediate assistance to active-duty soldiers and veterans, as well as their families in Pinal County. The charity is all-volunteer, unpaid, with minimal administrative overhead expense. The board of directors include veterans, retired military, and patriots.

Over the years, we have given approximately $175,000 to support Arizona veteran causes. The majority of our funds come from activities during the week of Veterans Day in November.
