It is time for the 11th Annual Military Care Package Drive!

Thank you cards and handwritten notes to the deployed service members are always needed. This is a great project for schools (art classes as an example), Sunday Schools or Scouts.
Individuals, families, or businesses will mail out the pre-packaged care packages. You will be mailing the packages to our deployed service members. It costs roughly $15.00 to mail one care package. We will provide you cash to mail, addresses and custom forms. We only ask that you mail the care package/s by mid NOV. You can take one package or as many as you would like.
In support of our annual Military Care Package drive, we will also need financial donations to mail the boxes to the 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.
