This project is where we collect much needed items that our deployed military members can use. We create care packages to also include notes of encouragement and gratitude for our service members.

Postage for a care package is $21.95 ( USPS flat rate box) and we fill the care packages with items from the suggested donation list. If you don’t have time to shop but would like to help, please consider donating today and we will do the shopping and packing. If you have the name of a deployed service member that you would like to see get a care package, please email their information to Please know that their information will be considered classified and not available beyond the mailing of the package.
