Soldiers Care Packages in 2016! Thanks to anyone who can assist!
There are about 225,000 U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed outside the continental U.S. and its territories. While most have comfortable living conditions (Japan, Korea, Italy, Spain, etc.), our care package recipients in more austere conditions are very grateful to receive hard-to-find basic living items. Many thousands do not have access to nice stores (PX, BX, NEX, MCX, etc.), on or off-base, and many have no regular access to U.S. bases (out on extended missions, at sea, assigned to the host country's base - with no American dining facilities, etc.).
Some of the care package items that troops have mentioned on their wish lists recently include simple things like body wash, shampoo, deodorant, shelf-stable microwavable meals, protein powder, insoles, foot powder, foldable pocket knives for maintenance work, coffee, powdered drink mixes, batteries, snacks, razors, non-aerosol shave gel, energy bars, laundry pods, air fresheners and many other assorted toiletry and food items.
If you are looking for an opportunity to send some encouragement and support to American troops overseas, we would be very grateful for any financial support. Our donations slow considerably in the early months of the year. If your company has a fiscal year ending March 31, perhaps you could consider an early 2016 donation for the troops.
We are an all-volunteer (no paid staff) 501(c)(3) nonprofit with about 100 volunteers in the Dallas - Fort Worth, TX region. We have been sending care packages for 10 years and support U.S. troops in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard ... from all 50 States! We estimate over 10,000 troops received some items from our care packages in 2015.
