Treats 2 Troops is an annual drive delivering thousands of community-donated treats to troops serving overseas and at home,
Collections kick off early for 2014 with a one-day event for the public to donate treats in exchange for a ticket to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus opening night, Sept. 11th, at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena.
