For The Troops is an organization dedicated to providing members of the American military with “We Care” packages. The “We Care” packages contain basic necessities, goodies and games. Simple care packages can mean a lot to those risking their lives every day overseas. For The Troops is 100% volunteer run and born out of that desire to show our troops that we care.
For the Troops sources everyday necessities from DollarDays to make consistent packages for each recipient. The most common items include nail clippers, soap, flip flops, shaving cream and body wipes. Items are then drop-shipped to the For The Troops facility in California where volunteers assembly the “We Care” packages. A handwritten letter is included in every box, many from students and seniors.
Upon receiving a “We Care” package, a soldier said, “Being stationed so far away from family and friends has definitely been a hard pill to swallow. However, the care package you sent allowed me that moment of joy that was much needed. Seeing that someone has thought enough to put these together is simply priceless.”
For The Troops work has grown from an idea of providing support and compassion, into a passionate mission for countless volunteers. To get involved or to donate to For The Troops visit,
