First, choose a name from our Hero list below. These names were handpicked from our full Hero list, especially for our website adoptions. The list will be updated as names are adopted and others need to be added. PLEASE NOTE: We are no longer posting names to pick from but you can still choose to adopt a male or female.  

Next, decide if you want to shop for your Hero’s care package OR donate $30 and have us do the work for you.


OPTION #1 – If you decide to SHOP for the items yourself… use our suggested items list to purchase items for your Hero. Bring or ship those items to our office BEFORE December 10th. Remember to bring or send $10 to cover the shipping charge on your package.

OPTION #2 – If you decide to let us do the shopping for you… donate a minimum of $30. This will cover the cost of the items for the care package as well as the cost of shipping.


Before we ship the care package, a card will be placed in the box stating “This care package was made especially for you by: ____” with your name or your family’s name filling in the blank. 

You will be sending a touch of home to your chosen Hero who is serving in harm’s way on our behalf. What better way to let them know they are not forgotten!!

  1. I have a story about a match maker who introduced me to my then u.s. army soldier stationed in Germany 1965. we married in 1967. The name of the story is IN THE BLINK OF OUR EYES, THE ATLANTIC OCEAN DISAPPEARED.

    We like to share it.

  2. Sending my boyfriend a care package so I thought I might as well send another at the same time! Love this idea to adopt a hero :)

  3. I have family serving and that have served in different branches and I think this is a wonderful thing for them. I am glad they are people that still take time to care. Thank you! !!!

  4. I love this- I teach third grade and our school theme this year is super heroes. I changed it a little- my students see superman, Spider-Man, batman and all the others around school, but in my room the see firemen, policemen and of course graphics of the brave men and women who defend our country each day. We have adopted two heroes due to the number of items donated by my students. I want them to know what a real hero is. Thank you for helping us recognize those who sacrifice so much!

  5. This was my first time adopting a hero, I started out adopting one then asked for 4 additional heroes. I had fun shopping and packing up the boxes. My husband thought I would never get everything in the requied size postal boxes.

    1. Thank you for adopting!! While shopping and packing for your Hero, I don’t think the feelings you have can be described. It’s almost like a force takes over your mind & body, especially when placing the items in the box. It almost becomes a jenga or tetris game! Thank you again for helping support the troops!

  6. I just adopted a soldier. But I haven’t got his information and don’t know how to get a email sent to him. I know how to send a email, I just don’t have his email address to get my email sent to him. Hope I get to email and correspond with my new adopted soldier!!

    1. Hi Kyndal,
