What Can I do to help?

  • Volunteering your time is not the only way you can help your troops!
  • Adopting an unit or a soldier and packing their boxes before the packing event is a great way to help!!
  • Writing letters of encouragement – Operation Care for Troops places 4 to 6 letters in each package.  This means 4000 to 15,000 pieces of mail is needed for each packing event.
  •  Helping with monitary cost of shipping the care packages (Additional details)
