The great Holiday care package project - 96 days to go!

There may be a lot of shopping days left until Christmas, but we have only 96 days to collect items for our soldiers holiday packages and ship the packages overseas. By November 1, 2009, our goal is ship 180,000 packages to the war zones.

How did we come up with that number? Simple, one for every single member of our military who will be away from home this Holiday season. We are sending every deployed service member in a combat zone a care package with holiday greetings, including goodies and a beautiful homemade blanket.

Monetary donations are always accepted as we need postage money to ship our
holiday packages. Our website www.SoldiersAngels.org has a paypal option - click donate on our site or mail a check to us.

How Can You Help?
Challenge your school, PTA group, teachers, parents, senior citizen centers,
businesses, church, college, radio & TV stations, and newspapers. Get the word out tell everyone you know you are collecting hot cocoa packets to provide comfort and warmth for our military.

Every item collected is that much closer to filling a care package with
holiday cheer.

We need 180,000 of everything:

Hot Cocoa Packets
Hot Cider Packets
Men's White Socks (sizes 9-15)
Candy Bars (any size)
Hard Candy
Candy Canes
Power Bars
Christmas Cards- signed but not sealed
...and we are open to just about anything that could be a "stocking stuffer"

Handmade Blanket of Belief - directions on our website
