What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our brave US Service Members have been deployed to the Middle East for many years now (2001 in Afghanistan and 2003 to Iraq). We here at home have become numb to this fact. We don't hear about anything in the news today and go about our lives not remembering they are still making sacrifices over in the Middle East to help other nations and protect our daily freedoms. We work hard each and every week to remind those receiving our care packages that they are not forgotten and are appreciated as we are grateful for their service and sacrifice.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization aims to boost the morale of our brave US Service Members deployed to the Middle East and in harm's way. We work hard each week to solicit funds to pay the costly expense of purchasing care package items and then paying for the postage to ship these items

We continue to partner with as many corporations, local businesses, schools, youth groups and places of worship to work together to complete a circle to gather care package items and/or fundraise for our shipping and care package expenses

We have an amazing network of support, friends and generous people helping in so many fashions. Our volunteers work tirelessly and local and national donations continue to help us as people from all over are beyond generous.

We have accomplished so much and we just hope we can continue to do what we do. In 2019, we shipped our personal record amount of care packages (over 75,000 lbs) and we hope to do about the same each year going forward.
