To All Patriotic Citizens: Give2TheTroops Needs YOUR Help!
Give2TheTroops® is a 501 (c) 3, tax-exempt, non-profit organization that sends care packages
and letters to our deployed and
military troops in combat zones. We are non-political and support all branches of the service.
Founded in December of
2002, by a
U.S. Marine wife, the organization has grown to branches in multiple states. Since 2002, G2TT has sent more than
178,000 large boxes
(averaging 65 lbs. each) to approximately one million American military troops deployed in combat and disaster relief zones.
This year, you're each being asked to support our “Fall Into The Holidays For The Troops" campaign
for the troops.
The holidays are always the hardest times for all troops. They're away from their loved ones and many
don't receive a piece of Halloween candy, a Thanksgiving card, a slice of pumpkin pie, see the MACY'S Thanksgiving Day Parade, etc. It's just another
"routine day" for them.
Give2TheTroops works hard at putting smiles on our troops' faces and giving thanks to all our troops serving for us. So we are going to bring the fall holidays to THEM!
Give2TheTroops is requesting the following holiday items for the
"Fall Into The Holidays For The Troops" Care Packages
to our troops:
~ Halloween decorations and masks ~
~ Halloween Candy (in
factory sealed bags - no individual pieces accepted) ~
~ Scary DVD Movies ~
