Send a Care Package to Deployed Service Members
Care packages are often an unexpected treat to service members who are deployed to dangerous and remote locations. Sometimes, in the loneliness of the front lines, a simple gesture of care can completely change a service member’s week.
There are numerous services which can help you send care packages to deployed troops. One of the most well-known is Operation Shoebox, which collects donated items to ship. Military members can put in requests, and Operation Shoebox does its best to get these things shipped out.
You can also donate items to Support Our Troops, an organization which offers the same services.
Alternatively, if you personally know a veteran, you can pack and ship your own care package to him or her.
Some of the best items to includes are: toothbrushes, toothpaste, magazines, board games, instant coffee, sunscreen, tissues, baby wipes, body wash, candy, beef jerky, Pop-Tarts, and plastic spoons.
Remembering our living veterans is a great way to honor those passed. Send a care package today!
