Send care packages to our military to show that we have not forgotten about their selfless service and sacrifice!
We currently have over 175,000 deployed troops around the world in over 75% of the countries. Many of our deployed service members do not have access to snacks, food or the supplies they need, as they might be on a small operating base or located in remote areas.
Greater Good Charities partners with Operation Support Our Troops-America to provide practical yet meaningful, comfort and care packages to remind our troops that they remain on our minds and close to our hearts. Since 2003, Operation Support Our Troops has been providing care and comfort packages to our troops abroad. Their boxes include cards, food and toiletries, and can brighten the day of a troop stationed in harm's way. Better yet, the packages include letters and drawings from the community. In 2018, OSOT-America spent over $125,000 is postage alone and sent over 90,000 pounds to our deployed troops.
You can help. These bountiful boxes — each one big enough for ten troops to enjoy — cost $25 to ship to their distant destinations. Whether filling a package or covering the postage, every bit helps show our military: “We have not forgotten.”
Report from the Field
"I want to say, "thank you" for the support given to the troops downrange. I received the care package and shared it with all the soldiers here. although we are away from homeand loved ones,we feel loved by the supporters like yourselves. It motivates us to hang in there till we get home. May God Bless everyone of you-take care!!" -Artillery Forward Observer
"I want to send a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart. My office has received two care packages so far on this deployment. Our team gets super excited for these terrific care packages. I have given items to over 30 sailors on the ship. Your support is selflessness and a blessing. Thank you for everything. PS- I taped all the children's letters around in our office." - DH
