Our Mission is to improve the morale of our Military Personnel who are overseas fighting for our freedom and to let them know that those of us at home care about them and support them! We do this by collecting and shipping donations of snacks and toiletries to allow our troops to have a ‘part of home’ in a foreign land, and humanitarian items to distribute to the local population to build relationships that will help now as well as in the future.
