Packages From Home's sole purpose is to provide food, personal care, and recreational items to deployed American troops, at no cost to the them. Since March 2005 we have averaged 1,000 to 1,500 packages a month being shipped to our heroes. Our goal is to ship many more. We collect donated items from generous patriotic citizens who live all across America. These items include non-perishable food, personal toiletries, and recreational items like games, books, music CDs and movie DVDs. Our staff and volunteers carefully pack the donations into U.S. Post Office Flat-Rate Priority Mail boxes. The boxes are then mailed to U.S. servicemen and women who are deployed overseas in harm's way. Monetary donations to include the funds received from Goodsearch go towards mailing costs and/or purchasing of special items to send to the troops.
Packages from Home is one of the organizations listed and recognized by the Department of Defense to send care packages in support of our troops. We hope you can find it in your heart to give a little back to our proud troops still serving abroad and support Packages From Home's mission. "The mission of Packages From Home is to send care and comfort packages to deployed American military heroes who are stationed in active duty theaters around the world, as well as to facilitate activities that elevate morale of all veterans.".
