Go Camo Care Package Collection

2,133 lbs.

towards our 20,000 lb. goal!

Soldiers’ Angels sends thousands of care packages to deployed every year.

But we need your help to ensure we have enough supplies to fill those care packages!

Let’s come together and ensure our Service Members know that America supports them.

The annual Go Camo Care Package Collection helps Soldiers’ Angels collect the top-requested care package items as well as financial donations to help offset the cost of shipping the care packages!

Go Camo Care Package Collection drive will run from April 1 – June 30.

I’m currently deployed to the Middle East and I’ve received so many packages from Soldiers’ Angels! I’m appreciative of all those who remember the deployed. The times are endless, the days all merge into one day. But we keep our heads up and we remember the passion and love we have for our country. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for remembering us!” – Shelly

Hosting a collection drive? We have put together materials for you to use for your collection! Just click on the links below, then right-click on the image and save to your computer.

“First, let me start by saying THANK YOU so much for your generous support of Bulldog Soldiers through sending incredible care packages! At a relatively remote and austere outpost such as ours, these packages go a LONG way. We have no access to a PX or shoppette, so there is always a huge spike in morale when mail comes in with all of your care packages!” – Chaplain Schmitz

Frequently Asked Questions

Soldiers’ Angels has created collection campaigns throughout the year as an opportunity for individuals, businesses, and organizations to come together and give back to our troops and veterans. These collection campaigns are meant to be held in a way that general members of the public (ie, your friends, family, classmates, co-workers, etc.) can donate to the campaign.

If you are hosting a collection, please do not solicit cash or in-kind donations from retailers, manufacturers, large corporations, or any other business entity. Due to the nature of those requests and the paperwork involved, solicitation of donations must come directly from Soldiers’ Angels. In most cases, we already have a relationship established with many of the major businesses. If you happen to have a connection at a retailer, manufacturer, large corporation, or other business entity that you think would be willing to donate cash or in-kind items to Soldiers’ Angels, please reach out to us and we would be happy to contact them. Email: [email protected]

Any and all opportunities to share your involvement with Soldiers’ Angels or your participation in this campaign with the media, including print media, news media, broadcast media (including podcasts), or major internet media (such as major blogs and YouTube channels), must first be cleared and approved by Soldiers’ Angels. We would love for you to help us spread the word about Soldiers’ Angels and this campaign, however, we need to ensure that the information you are sharing is accurate and that all guidelines are being followed. If you are contacted by the media, please forward the inquiry to us by emailing: [email protected]. We will do our best to work with you and the media source to ensure your story is shared accurately and in a timely manner.

You do not need to clear anything with Soldiers’ Angels if you would like to share information about your participation in this campaign through your personal social media channels or social media channels for your business or organization. We encourage you to help us spread the word through use of these channels! This includes Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, LinkedIn, SnapChat, and any other smaller social channel.

If you are currently registered as an Angel, any contributions you make to the Go Camo Campaign will be considered an in-kind donation only and should not be accounted for when reporting your support on your Angel profile.

You do not need to pack your items into a “care package.” Simply box all products together and we will sort once they are received at our warehouse. Our volunteers in San Antonio will redistribute your donated items into care packages as needed.

No, you cannot ship your items directly to a deployed Service Member. Soldiers’ Angels does not provide the shipping address of any Service Member to anyone aside from our registered Angel volunteers. This campaign is collecting care package items for Soldiers’ Angels to ship to deployed Service Members. We will not be providing you with an address to ship care packages overseas.

If you are interested in becoming a registered Angel and supporting a Service Member directly, please refer to our volunteer page here for more information about our numerous teams that support deployed Service Members.

Once you finish your collection, please ship all of your items to Soldiers’ Angels via the address below. Your shipments must arrive or be postmarked within the Go Camo campaign period in order to count towards the goal.

Yes. If you are collecting items or purchasing items directly and will be shipping to our headquarters, you are responsible for all shipping costs. Please keep this in mind as you collect and purchase so that you do not incur shipping charges greater than what you anticipate.
