Suggested Donations

Why donate these items?

Often our troops find themselves in remote locations with little or no room for much more than their equipment. Even a place to buy some of basic everyday things that we might take for granted is not possible to many troops in the field.

The following list is a starting point just to give you an idea of the great need for simple everyday items that our service personnel have when they are deployed. Other items are helpful as well! Checkout these guidelines to get started.

Important!

  • Items must be in non-aerosol containers and non-pump style dispensers
  • Glass containers are not permitted
  • For instant beverages and sweeteners should be single servings or instant single servings
