Care Packages

Following in the footsteps of our grandmothers and mothers, we have mailed "a little bit of home" to our sons and daughters serving around the world. Often commanding officers in the field will contact us to let us know that they have a young man or woman who is not receiving any boxes or letters from home. These kids quickly come into our hearts and soon receive a care package with a big blue star on the box, letting them know that good people from Alameda and Contra Costa Counties in California think about and support them. Our boxes have come to have meaning to the troops overseas. We know this from the letters we receive. We depend on your generous donations and volunteer help to continue sending these care packages and notes from home.

 

All donations are fully tax deductible under our 501(c)3 IRS status. Kindly note your donation is intended for care package supplies/postage on the memo line. Tax ID # 84-1622728.
