Home » Military » Annual Care Package Drive for Deployed Military

This care package drive started off with my family sending care packages to those that we knew personally that were deployed. Over the years it has grown and it has really benefited a lot of our deployed military. Please help us send care packages to our deployed service members. It is a wonderful away to show our appreciation for all they sacrifice for us.

Please help spread the word!

We would love to match the number of assembled boxes (100) from past years or double that amount.

All donated items are needed by 10/16 please. The packing party, where we will assemble the care packages, will be on 10/17 at BounceU. Volunteers are needed to organize the donations and assemble the packages on 10/17 please.

The donation drop off points are my home (Kennesaw), our office (Marietta) and with our longtime supporter, BounceU of Kennesaw I will also coordinate with you to pick up your donations.

I could not do this with out my friend and fellow Veteran, Stephanie Rice. https://www.bounceu.com/kennesaw-ga/

Thank you cards and handwritten notes to the deployed service members are greatly needed. This is a great project for schools (art classes), Sunday Schools or Scouts.

Care package donations needed: gum, hard candy (nothing that can melt), trail mix, granola bars, current magazines, beef jerky, individual powdered drink mixes (Gatorade for example), oral products, travel sized wet wipes, small travel games, small footballs, playing cards, books, all toiletries, lip balm, sunscreen (lotion only), Sudoku, Crosswords, Brainteasers, etc.

In support of our annual Military Care Package drive, we are in need of financial donations to mail the boxes to deployed service members. Please call or email me, if you are interested in making a financial donation for the shipping costs. Melissa@ThinkMelissa.com or 770-310-3269

How you can help: donate items, donate money to mail the care packages, volunteer your time to build the packages, spread the word, get your school, Scouts, Churches, and other organizations involved.

The packing party (where we will assemble the care packages) will be on 10/17, from 6-8:00 pm, at BounceU in Kennesaw.

Thank you for your consideration in advance!
