Support Our Troops

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS

heart

The Missions Committee sends care boxes to soldiers who are stationed overseas.  If you know of someone who is currently overseas and would like to have a box sent to them, please call Linda Seelhoff at 616-527-3914 or email seelhoff@sbcglobal.net with the below requested information:

  • First and Last Name
  • Address: (number, street, etc.)
  • City: (typically an APO)
  • State/Province: (typically an AE or AF)
  • Postcode: (zip code)

You can help with supporting our troops by . . .

  • Providing some of the items listed below
  • Make a monetary donation (to purchase items or to help with shipping costs)

Examples of items needed for Women and Men:

  • Packaged snacks such as; Little Debbies, cookies, chips, peanuts, hard candy, tuna packs, gum, ice tea or lemonade to go.  Please, all items must be in there original package and/or bag (No Chocolate items)
  • Chap stick, shampoo, conditioner, deoderant, toothpaste, toothbrush and soap
  • Hand wipes (must be Alcohol Free) and no hand sanitizers or baby wipes
  • Valentines (can be hand-made) and/or greeting card(s) or personal letter(s)
  • Magazines about cars, hunting, travel, people, places, health, fitness, technology, etc.
  • Puzzle books such as; crossword, sudoku and word search
  • Batteries - AA and AAA (MUST be Alkaline and in original package)

*Holidays are especially hard on our Service Personnel. Missing loved ones back home is significant and lonely. Such Holidays as Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentines and Easter bring a huge and emotional toil on families with loved ones serving, and with those serving.  You can help to make that time a little easier to endure with a 'Care Package'!  Please make sure you donate any items for a care package well in advance (at least 2 months) of the upcoming Holiday, as package/mailing of care packages need EXTRA traveling time in order to arrive in time for the upcoming Holiday.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP IN SUPPORTING OUR TROOPS OVERSEAS!
