Give 2 The Troops needs your help!



To: All Patriotic Citizens!

Give2TheTroops® is a 501 (c) 3, tax-exempt, non-profit organization that sends care packages and letters to our deployed and wounded military troops in combat zones. They 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 many branches throughout the United States.  Since 2002, G2TT has sent more than 185,000 large boxes (averaging 70 lbs. each) to approximately one million American military troops deployed in combat and disaster relief zones.


This year, you are each being asked to support them with their:
