How can you help our nonprofit send care packages to some of the most remote of the roughly 150,000 U.S. military troops serving overseas in 2024?

1) Donate Financially - Our greatest need is cash for our mailing costs. With no paid staff, we strive to maximize the use of donations. We are a 501(c)(3) charity, so your gifts are tax deductible.

This month marks 15 years since we sent our first care packages to our adopted platoon from Ft. Bragg!! We started with 35 soldiers from a communications platoon and now we reach between 12,000-15,000 on an ongoing basis.  There have seen so many changes.....the price of a flat rate box at that time was $8.95, we used to hand write all the custom's forms, have the packing events at our houses, we packed what everyone brought and then passed around the hat to pay for postage. My how we've grown!    

We don't have the numbers for the early years, but, since November 2011, we have spent $478,457.82 on shipping!!  We averaged about 3500 boxes for those years as well. That's a lot of love being sent to our soldiers deployed overseas! 

During 2019, we mailed a total of 3741 boxes: 3368 flat rate boxes and 373 brown boxes. Over 45,000 lbs of goods to 39 points of contacts. 2019 shipping costs was nearly $68,000! 

We are extremely thankful for all the volunteers who have given their time plus all of the people and companies that have contributed funds and items to help us support our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines currently serving overseas. Without your help, we wouldn’t be able to provide care packages and encouragement to the 12,000 plus troops we reach every year. And, a big shout out to thank all of our "Angels" - with out you, we wouldn't have been able to grow and  support ours soldiers on an ongoing basis.

Here's to another 15 years!
