Between 150,000 to 200,000 active duty personnel are currently deployed overseas, 20% of which are women. Over 75% of our care package requests come from currently deployed servicemembers. Over 95% of our care package requests are for women. Every year we fulfill these requests, shipping on average over 4.5 tons of products. Our packages go to APO/FPO addresses primarily in the Middle East, Europe, Asia, and on Naval ships worldwide. We often hear from servicewomen stating that our packages are the "best [they] ever received."
Packing and shipping costs are nearing $20 per package. We also need donations of products and volunteer hours to put together our care packages. Your donation, partnership, sponsorship, and/or volunteer hours are greatly appreciated by our organization and our women and men in service.
Our most limiting factor in sending care packages are our postage funds. At this time our packing and shipping costs approach $20/box. Please support us today with a fixed or monthly contribution.
