Supporting Our Troops, Care package for adopt a soldier

Send or Contribute to Care Packages


Deployed soldiers miss some of the basic comforts of home. You can "adopt" and form a special bond with one soldier by sending him care packages full of snacks, toiletries, and DVDs through programs like Soldiers' Angels.

If you can't stay in regular contact with a soldier or make a full care package for her, you can donate money toward a care package service or send individual care package items. Special Kindness In Packages (SKIP) sends care packages to deployed soldiers. They provide a great list of care package content ideas and accept donations of those items at Special Kindness In Packages, Inc., P.O. Box 276, East Bridgewater, MA 02333.

Next: Donate a Cell Phone or Other Technology
