Items needed for our annual Unite for Troops drive

 Letters of Encouragement

The letters of encouragement included in our packages go a long way in providing encouragement to our servicemen and women even when they return home. Often our words are the best gift we can share with those so far from home.

 Crafts for Troops

We enjoy including homemade crafts & cards in our care packages, especially when they are made by little hands. Some ideas for crafts include homemade cards, ornaments, signs, tags or bracelets.

 New children’s books

We support the United Through Reading program which helps ease the stress of separation for military families by having deployed parents read children’s books aloud via DVD for their child to watch at home.
