Do You Know What Our Troops Love?

Our care package program makes sure our troops know they are supported, appreciated and supplies them items they desperately need. Each care package is a taste of home while they serve so bravely in harms way. One of our most popular and most requested items is coffee.

 That’s why we include coffee from our friends at the Rogers Family Company in every package. The aroma alone is enough to picture your family at the kitchen table in the morning getting ready to start the day. This feeling of being home with family, if only for a few moments, while they get ready to start another shift, patrol, or watch is why we make sure to include it in every care package.

To brighten the mornings of America’s bravest, PLEASE CLICK HERE NOW, and help give our troops that feeling of home.

Our volunteers make sure it is loaded with the items and treats our troops love. Other top requested items like Beef Jerky, Wet Wipes, and Oreo’s are in every box. Most importantly they make sure to put in your personal message. This note, no matter how many words, will be read countless times while deployed.



When you send a care package to a Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine you are not only sending a fresh cup of coffee, you are personally telling our troops thank you for all their hard work to keep us all safe.

DONATES RIFLE TO HELP RAISE OVER $300,000 ON TROOPATHON

Sacramento, Calif. – Move America Forward (MAF), the nation’s largest grassroots pro-troop organization announced the winner of a huge giveaway from STAG ARMS to help promote Troopathon 7, a star-studded effort to send care packages to troops in Afghanistan. At the end of the fundraiser MAF collected $301,626 thanks, in part, to the generous support of STAG ARMS.

To help support TROOPATHON and send more care packages to the troops, Firearms Manufacturer STAG ARMS partnered with MAF to give away a FREE AR-15 rifle, valued at over $900. The winner, Wayne Dupree, an 8 year Air Force veteran who lives in Maryland, can choose any one of three available STAG ARMS models in left-handed or right-handed configuration.

“Winning this Stag Arms Rifle during Troopathon 2014 was the cake on the table for me but the icing was gathering social media together and giving them a way to make donations to my military brothers and sisters in the way of care packages.” said Mr. Dupree

“I was in the military for eight years and I know first hand what a care package will do especially in times when you are lonely or homesick. It was a great honor to have helped them and win this rifle. While in the USAF I was expert with the M-16 and .38 so this is something I will treasure always.” said Dupree, after being notified that he was the winner of the STAG ARMS AR-15 giveaway.

“Stag Arms has always been a supporter of the troops not just with discounts on purchases for our servicemen but in donations to pro-troop initiatives like Troopathon. We were honored to have their support and because of their generosity more troops overseas will receive support through care packages this Summer.” said Scott Raab, Operations Director in charge of coordinating care package shipments overseas.  “Without wonderful sponsors like STAG ARMS we wouldn’t have been able to raise over $300,000 to support our troops.”

“Troopathon 7  – Care Packages for Our Heroes” was the 7th annual Troopathon event, an 8-hour long fundraiser bringing together pro-troop movie stars, TV personalities, elected officials, professional athletes, musicians, talk radio hosts and many other supporters to encourage viewers to sponsor care packages for the troops serving overseas through the group’s website (www.troopathon.org) or by phone at (866) 866-6372.
