Show our military that we have not forgotten about their selfless service and sacrifice!
Shifting political priorities and economic malaise at home can sometimes make it easy to overlook the thousands of Americans still deployed to dangerous places around the world. With so few serving on behalf of so many, our overseas obligations have turned into a revolving door of deployments, sending our service members on their fourth, fifth, and even sixth deployments. These frequent and extended absences add to the already stressful conditions of combat.
GreaterGood.org partners with Operation Support Our Troops-America to provide practical yet meaningful, comfort and care packages remind our troops that they remain on our minds and close to our hearts. Volunteers stuff each package with the food and toiletries that aren’t always available in the rugged mountains of Afghanistan or the remote outposts of Iraq. Better yet, the packages include letters and drawings from the community members that help supply the contents, adding a small but personal touch that can help boost morale.
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
"Thank you so very much for your package! It arrived in well condition and was a huge surprise! The diversity of the contents is such a great combination. Definitely a great way to put a smile on the face of a military member. I appreciate the wholesome snacks, the bracelet and dream catcher tremendously. Adds the perfect touch to a care package while underway. Can't wait to make them! Thank you again!"
