We are about a week away from our BIGGEST care package assembly of the YEAR!! If you have never attended this event, then you don’t know what you’re missing! We will be packaging THOUSANDS of items, within a couple hours, to send to our deployed troops. We need YOUR help to make this event a success.

On Christmas Day, our troops will not be gathered around the tree at home with family and friends. Instead, they will be standing watch over each of us, protecting us from harm and defending our liberties. Each one is a parent, a sibling, a child, a spouse, a friend, and an American. We need to send them encouragement as well as our thanks.

Maybe you’re wondering… HOW CAN I HELP?

First of all, POSTAGE money is always needed! Even if we have shelves full of stuff to send, we can’t send anything if we have no money to pay the shipping. Many people think we can ship care packages for free… but that is not the case. It’s costs an average of $10 per box for postage. Our goal for Operation SEND Christmas is to ship around 3,000 packages… you can do the math! So… with that being said, monetary donations are ALWAYS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!  (Click here to donate.)

We depend upon donated items to fill the care packages. These items include personal care items, drink mixes, snacks, candy, puzzle books, and of course cards & letters. We also need quart size bags to put these items in. You can view our list of suggested items to donate HERE. You can bring items to the armory that night or bring them by our office during business hours.

In order to make Operation S.E.N.D. Christmas a success, we depend upon help from schools, churches, organizations, businesses, and individuals from all over the USA. We would love for YOU to also be involved! If you can attend, please register HERE.  If you cannot attend, consider making a donation, either care package items or monetary. Even if you cannot afford to make a donation, spread the word with your friends and family.

If you listen to the news reports, we are made to believe that our troops have returned home. However, we have MORE names on our care package list now than we EVER have. We can’t let them down! Help us send a package to each and every name on the list!

Thank you for partnering with Military Missions to support our troops!
