Our main source of names to send care packages to is the web site anysoldier.com. This organization was founded by a retired Army Veteran and is run completely by donations. If you plan to look at the web site, I must warn you that it can be addictive. Once you read the requests and letters from the troops, you will understand why Yard Sale For The Troops and Organizations like this are so important. Weather the Care Packages come from the Boy Scouts or your local Church, our Soldiers cannot get enough of them. Our Troops need to be reminded that America has not forgotten them.
Another way we receive an address is from folks who come to the Thrift Store and bring the address of their Family Member or Friend. This is always great because we can include letters or anything they want to send too.
If you have the name of a Troop that is overseas and would like them to receive a Care Package, please send us their APO / FPO address via the Contact Us Page. We need their name, rank, APO / FPO address and their unit. Please include your name and relationship so we can mention you in our letter.
Also, if there is a particular item you know they are requesting, please let us know as we want to make these packages as personal as possible. Just remember that we are not allowed to send any homemade food item.
