SOT Participation Opportunities
Join us as we Support Our Troops! “Many hands make light work” and there’s room for your skillset! We cover it all! Shopping, packing and shipping goods to our deployed service members; monthly correspondence; active fundraising through the production of our Annual Golf Tournament and Silent Auction! Each year these get bigger and better and we enjoy each other’s company while we work together for our troops!
Deployed Troop Shipments
Each month 5 SOT Teams will shop, pack and ship boxes filled with goodies to those active duty members who deployed out of the U.S. We make sure they have plenty to share with their units/squadrons! Our Teams love to take special requests we try out best to fulfill them. Most requests are typical, like candies not available in their current location or special socks that wear better than "standard issue." We've even sent pool cues for a unit who had a pool table but no sticks! We'll try our best to accommodate whenever we can!
Cards and Letters
Hand-crafted cards (generously donated by the Robson Ranch Sassy Stampers) are sent with hand written notes. Monthly thank you cards are sent to deployed active duty military members and quarterly to those stationed within the USA. Additionally, each receives a birthday card AND at Christmas, we send a special
gift as a token of gratitude
for their service.
ENROLL YOUR LOVED ONE!
Robson Ranch residents who have someone close to them serving as Active Duty U.S. Service Members, are encouraged to add their names to our lists! Fill out this simple enrollment form!
SOT member meetings are held at the Robson Ranch Clubhouse on the second Monday of each month at 1:00 PM. Fill out a membership form and join us! Dues are only $10 a year and cover our operating costs so that all the funds we raise can be used for our mission!
Annual Golf Tournament
Each April since 2008, we host one of our major fundraisers held at the Robson Ranch Wildhorse Course. This fun, modified scramble includes several contest prizes like “longest drive” and “closest to pin” and more! We enjoy inviting active duty service members associated with our Robson Community and are happy to cover their fees and meal costs for a much-deserved respite from military life.

Annual Silent Auction
Held in conjunction with the Robson Ranch Veterans Day Program, the Silent Auction is one of our two major fundraising events of the year.
The Clubhouse hallways are lined with wonderful donations allowing us to consistently bring in over $20,000 annually! (And we have such fun behind the scenes putting it all together!)
Grand Flag Display
SOT promotes community patriotism by displaying 180 flags from the Robson Ranch Main Gate to the Clubhouse on federal patriotic holidays. Join our team to put them up or take them down (which sometimes results in impromptu get-togethers!)
Flags for Homeowners
SOT has a U.S. Flag kit that we will install in your yard before the next flag display day. For a $60.00 donation, your kit includes a 3’ x 5’ flag, a ten-foot steel pole and an in-ground PVC sleeve. The sleeve allows for easy placement and removal of the flag. Friendly SOT members will install your flag kit for you according to HOA regulations. $20.00 of your donation is tax deductible due to the SOT IRS 501(c)(3) designation. Click here for a printable order form or contact Quinn Sowell at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Are you or a friend willing to share some military-related story or at one of our meetings? We’d love to hear about it! Email Scott Cooksey, President.
