What can we do for our troops? 2015

FullSizeRender (4)

Are you wondering, “What can I do for the troops?”

Problem solved…

Soldiers’ Angels – Sign up and “adopt” a service member and send socks, baby powder, lip balm, flip flops, sleep pants, shaving cream, toothbrushes and toothpaste, books, and more.

Operation Paperback – This organization “collects gently used books nationwide and sends them to American troops overseas as well as veterans and military families here at home.”

Ebooks for Troops – Provides e-books to military personnel deployed overseas. You can also donate a used Kindle.

Books for Soldiers – You can donate books, DVDs, and games.

Send a cuppa joe to a Joe (or Jane)

Green Beans Coffee is so easy – it takes only a couple minutes – you can spend just $2 ($2!) and send a great cup of coffee to a service member overseas. Connect with Green Beans Coffee on Facebook.

Just send a note – zero dollars

The USO has a page that allows you to send a note, and it won’t cost you a cent.

Or you can Act Now to help with a monetary contribution.

Wounded Warriors

What a worthy cause. Helping our Wounded Warriors live a better life.

Copied from their site – “To raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members. To help injured service members aid and assist each other. To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.”

Make a one-time donation to Wounded Warriors.

Remember what our warriors have done for you. What will you do for our troops this holiday season?
