Would like to send care packages but need someone to send them to.

We have used adobt a soilder many times. We have donated lots of items to different churches, schools and such.
Since I am always here on the boards I thought this would be a good place to ask.
I know there are many familes here that have a loved one serving. My family would like to send some mail to some needing a little love

Two suggestions-if there are National Guard soldiers deployed from your area you can call the armory and ask them for information on how to send packages to the unit. You can also use the site anysoldier.com to find units and soldiers with needs.

Just contact the USO. They can direct you. I serve onboard the USS Maryland and we have many families from the state send us care packages.

If you are from select states you can send to sailors from a namestake ship or USO will direct you better.
