in our Holiday Care Packages for the Troops
We are rapidly approaching the biggest holiday of the year. Yes we’re talking about Christmas. It seems like it snuck up on us, doesn’t it?
There are almost 15,000 troops in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as thousands more deployed in various hot spots around the Middle East. These brave men and women won’t be home with their families for the holidays, they’ll be spending Christmas protecting our freedoms.
Below you’ll find some of the special holiday items we’re including with our Christmas care packages for the troops. Our boxes still come with most of the standard care package items but for Christmas we like to send our troops something to remind them of the Christmas spirit.
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.
Candy canes are the iconic Christmas candy and we’re going to send the troops some to of these perfect peppermints of the season.
Finally we’ve got the perfect recipe for Christmas coffee, some peppermint coffee beans roasted locally by our jolly old friends at Roger’s Family Coffee Company.
Just imagine what it would be like to know someone loves and supports you while you are on patrol, standing guard or just a few months away from coming home. Make your gift today and send the support you know they deserve, with a tax deductible donation.
