Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Many deployed U.S. military personnel do not receive any support while deployed. This could be because of financial limitations of family and friends at home or a variety of other reasons.

Charting impact

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

Our aim is to provide assistance by sending care packages or "Boxes of Home" to deployed military members that may not be receiving support from home to let them know that their mission is important to others and that their sacrifices are forgotten.

We collect goods for care packages and money for shipping and purchasing supplies. We strive to garner grass roots support from individuals as well as corporate sponsorship and donations whenever possible.

While we have no paid employees, we have a network of volunteers and fundraisers that have helped to send thousands of packages to military members that are in need of support.

Thousands of "Boxes of Home" have been sent and the number is increasing every year. We find that there is no shortage of people that could use a little help while deployed nor is there a shortage of donors and supporters that are willing to assist with our goals.
