F.A.Q

Military CARE PACKAGES FAQ

I want to support the troops but I don’t know anyone in the service?
Through our unique program, individuals and organizations can sponsor soldiers, and send gifts with good wishes and messages of support without actually personally knowing anyone in the service.

Don’t soldiers already get plenty of support from friends and family?
Often friends and families just aren’t able to send gifts and packages as often as they’d like. We constantly hear that mail is a soldier’s only link to home, and there’s no such thing as too much.

How does the Move America Forward sponsorship program work?
Sending care packages to Iraq and Afghanistan can be a confusing and frustrating process.

You can sponsor care packages for as many troops by filling our our online order form, we take care of the rest.

Who can register to get care packages and how?

How did MAF decide what to include in their support packages?
We want to send our troops packages full of things they really want and can make use of, but we also wanted to send only the highest quality products, so we listened to the troops and formulated a mix of food, snacks and comfort items that our troops can put to good use and is also cost-effective for your dollar. Every care package comes with coffee, cookies, beef jerky and other items, while seasonal items include special items; for example Christmas candy or patriotic themed items 4th of July.

How long does it take for my military care package to arrive?
Your package(s) ship through U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail to one of the official East or West Coast military mail depot.  From there the military’s post service will deliver the package directly to a soldier on the frontlines.  Average deliver time ranges between 2-4 weeks.
