The 9th Annual Military Care Package Drive is underway in Kennesaw. Each year, Christmas care packages are mailed to our deployed service members to show our appreciation for all they sacrifice for us. Care packages are filled with donated items and sent to our servicemen and women who will not be home for the Holidays. This event relies on individuals, families, or businesses and they need our help!
There are several ways you can help!
DROP OFF DONATIONS FOR THE CARE PACKAGES:
Items needed are gum, hard candy (nothing that will melt), trail mix, granola bars, Christmas (non-perishable) related cookies or candies, current magazines, beef jerky, individual powdered drink mixes (Gatorade for example), dental products, travel sized wet wipes, small travel games, small footballs, playing cards, books, all toiletries (male and female), deodorant (no aerosols please) lip balm, sunscreen (lotion only), Sudoku, Crosswords, Brainteasers, etc.
Donation drop off locations include: PearTree Home Florist Gifts in Powder Springs, Aqua-Tots Swim Schools in Kennesaw, The School Box, Inc. in Kennesaw, The School Box in Northlake, The School Box in Southlake.

WRITE THANK YOU CARDS TO THE TROOPS:
Thank you cards and handwritten notes to the deployed service members are also always needed. This would be a great project for schools , Sunday Schools or Scouts!

Individuals, families, or businesses will mail out the pre-packaged care packages. You will be mailing the packages to our deployed service members. It costs roughly $15.00 to mail one care package. The group will provide you cash to mail, addresses and custom forms. They only ask that you mail the care package's by mid NOV. You can take one package or as many as you would like!
