We support our military in many ways and we “care beyond the box”! Our military care boxes are custom made so we fill the request of each member using our donations most efficiently and our shipping funds wisely. We do not drop ship to generic addresses and adopt units/individuals for the duration of the deployment not one time support. Our heroes communicate regularly with us developing a relationship and offering them a support system and a ear to listen to every need. To truly support our military it is more than just a cookie or pillow, it is to dedicate to be there for them in good and bad times and to earn their trust and respect and we take that very seriously.
Our organization depends on your support for food drives and funds for shipping costs ($16.75 box) so it is critical for our longevity we spread the word about what we do. We have wonderful events and fundraisers throughout the year and work with our local schools to educate children on respecting our military and understanding the cost of their freedom. We would love to come and present to your organization, school, or company please click HERE to request a speaker. Thank you for your support and your interest in how we serve our military members!
My Father was in the Army 101st Airborne and I was raised with a deep admiration and respect for the military. After owning a gift business for 13 years and serving on numerous community boards and committees, I wanted to find a way to give back to those who sacrifice so much. I started by adopting one soldier that turned to three and so on and with the community wanting to be involved and help as well, I soon saw a way to connect the military and community together thus creating SOS.
We are different than many groups in that we are in direct contact with the soldiers and they tell us exactly what their needs are and we fill them, offering help that they most often would not get any other way. From toilet paper, to food, to soap or a microwave, anything we are able to ship and have the funds to do so, it is sent and with haste. There is no generic drop-shipping with SOS and we bring the community together to write cards, we go into schools to develop opportunities of patriotic activities, and SO much more! We are honored to help all those who serve and provide moral support for their families and look forward to your help and support as we grow our mission to offer our best to our heroes!

"Support Our Soldiers was one of the most helpful services I had in Afghanistan. The packages I received were phenomenal. I always got to pick and choose anything I really wanted and if I ever needed anything I got it. I love and appreciate everything they did. Thank you so much SOS. I love what you do!!"
"I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU on behalf of all my soldiers, and myself. We are part of B Co. 2/149 stationed in Afghanistan. We have started to receive the packages that you have been putting together and sending. We cannot thank you enough for the love and support that you provide to the
Troops. Some of them have reminded me of a kid at Christmas when your boxes arrive. Its nice to see the smiles that you have brought to their faces. Thank You again for the wonder things that you do."
