One of our most popular support efforts here at Military Missions Inc is sending care packages to our deployed troops.  We send a touch of home to those who are deployed and serving in harm’s way on our behalf.  We send out thousands of packages each year.

As we go about our daily lives, our troops stand watch over each of us, protecting us from harm and defending our liberties.  Each member of our Armed Forces is a parent, a sibling, a child, a spouse, a friend, and fellow American.  It is our responsibility to keep our troops encouraged and ensure they realize we are grateful for their service.

Join all of us at Military Missions, Inc. and help to make a difference in the lives of our American heroes and their family members. Find out what a blessing it is to be a part of OPERATION S.E.N.D.

Check out our website, read our blog, and be sure to find out about the different ways you can get involved in OPERATION S.E.N.D. We have year round assemblies including larger efforts in the Spring during OPERATION S.E.N.D. EASTER and in the fall as we prepare for OPERATION S.E.N.D. CHRISTMAS.

YOU can make a difference in the life of an American Hero.


It’s time to get the word out about OPERATION S.E.N.D. and we need your help!  We do not pay to advertise. This allows us to use our donations to cover the cost of care packages and the postage required to send the boxes overseas.

Get your friends, family, coworkers, teammates, classmates, club members, neighbors, and church friends involved. We need volunteers, care package donations, cards and letters, and monetary donations to offset shipping costs.

Pass out flyers!  Download donation suggestions and guidelines and get your shopping started!

    1. I’m not sure where you are located, but if you’re near Lexington Ky we have care package assembly nights that you could participate in. Due to security reasons we cannot give out names or addresses that have been submitted to us. If you would like to donate items through us, we will include them in outgoing care packages.

  3. Military Missions, I am the principal of a small school in PA. We will be collecting items for deployed soldiers and I’m wondering if we can include small items for the soldiers to give to children and/or schools where they are serving?

    Thank you,

    1. Hi Rachel, Thank you so much for contacting us! We would be thrilled to have your school involved to help us support the troops! At this time we don’t send items for the children because we can’t determine who would be in locations to hand the items out. Some of them may be in remote locations and they would have no need for those items, so we choose to use every inch of the box for items that can benefit them the most.If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at Thanks!

  4. Where can I find military addresses to send ANIMAL care packages to, any location over seas? Also, any suggestions on what to send for these animal care packages?

    1. Hello! I’m afraid I won’t be much help… last year we had a unit that specifically requested items for their dogs but we currently do not know of any units with dogs. The units on our list might have dogs but we are not aware of it. Due to security risks it is getting harder to seek out info such as this. We just have to use the info that is submitted to us. Good luck on your quest!

  14. We have two classes of children in CT that would like to send letters and snacks to our troops for Valentine’s Day. Where can we send it? What is the date it needsto be sent by to arrive by Valentine’s Day? Thanks for your help.


    1. Hi Michelle, Thank you for contacting us!
      It can take several weeks for care packages to arrive overseas so we won’t have time to get them there by Valentine’s Day. However, I’m sure the troops would absolutely LOVE receiving their letters even if they are late. You can ship them to us and we will include them in the next packages we send out. Our address is:
      Military Missions
      3650 Boston Rd Suite 146
      Lexington KY 40514
      Thank you!
