Each box will include a real Christmas stocking that the troops can hang as decoration just like people back home hang them by the chimney. It’s an unmistakable sign that it’s Christmas time!
We’re also packing in some Hot Chocolate, the perfect feel-good drink to sit around the fireside with your buddies and tell great stories of Christmas times past.
These care packages are exactly what’s needed to lift the spirits of our troops on the front lines. Some of them haven’t seen or heard from their families in months and they’ll be extremely grateful to get a message of support and a box of goodies FROM YOU!
We had about 40 people volunteer and they helped us pack more than 2,000 Christmas boxes for the troops
