Urgent Call for Support

URGENT Support Needed for Troops Deployed to European Theater

U.S. Army photo by Pfc. Semaj Johnson.*

As troops continue to deploy in response to the invasion of Ukraine, we need your immediate support to continue to provide aid, comfort, and resources to the service members that have been called to respond.

The invasion into Ukraine marks a moment in history that most of us believed we would never see (or never see again) in our lifetime— the start of war in the European theater. Thousands of American service members have been called to countries like Germany, Poland, Latvia, and Maldova to provide assistance to our European allies.

We are in urgent need of care package items in order to keep up with the increase in requests for support. We are also in need of financial donations to help cover the cost of shipping care packages and other items.

A donation of $25 will ship a care package to a deployed service member.

A donation of $70 will ship 5 to 6 care packages in one large master box.

A donation of $300 will ship an entire pallet of snacks, hygiene, and more.

Below is a sample list of needed items for care packages or you can also shop our Amazon Wish List and have items sent directly to our warehouse. If you would rather provide funding to help cover the cost of shipping, please donate here.
