We are often asked How we know which soldiers are waiting for packages and if they really need or appreciate receiving a package from a virtual stranger. Well, as you know MAF has fulfilling our mission of supporting our deployed troops for well over a decade now and during that time we have developed many avenues to help our deployed soldiers receive packages from home.
One of those tools we use is our Soldier Sign Up page. Soldiers can sign up for packages through our secure Soldier Sign Up system. Recently, there has been a BIG surge in our Soldier Sign-up Program on our website. This program allows soldiers to sign-up to receive care packages from us and over the past two months we\’ve had HUNDREDS of troops requesting care packages for themselves and their brothers and sisters on the front lines.
With so many troops still overseas fighting the War on Terror, there is still an enormous need to support our men and women in uniform. There are up to 18,000 troops now deployed in Iraq (5,000) and Afghanistan (13,000), as well as some 500 special forces in Syria.
We are working hard to fulfill all the soldier sign-up requests and make sure that all our brave men and women of the military receive the care package that they requested!
These powerful words from our deployed troops humble us and remind us we are making a difference in the daily lives of our deployed troops. If you are interested in supporting one of our troops like Loida, why not take the time to send one of our waiting troops a care package full of great treats like beef jerky, coffee, socks, personal care items, and best of all a personal note of support from you.
Your support makes a world of difference to our troops. Thanks for all you do!
