Support the Families

support-our-soldiers-baby-clothesWe need baby clothes, blankets, burp cloths, diaper bags, pajamas, etc. from 0-12 months (boys and girls) to further support our young soldiers having children, both while they’re away and when they return home.

Send Us Holiday Candy

support-our-soldiers-candySend us your extra holiday candy and we will send it to some very happy troops on your behalf! They love chocolate and since we can only send it from October to February it’s a perfect way to help! Hit the store the day after the holiday and you can usually save 50% or more.

Request a Speaker

Invite an S.O.S. representative to speak at your next civic, church, or VFW meetings to help us spread the word about S.O.S. and the needs of the soldiers. We are available to speak via Skype as well so anywhere in the country is possible! Click HERE to submit a request for a speaker.

Ask your employer about matching donations

Many companies will match employee charitable donations, ask your employer if that program is offered and help us receive more donations for food and supplies!

Words From the Soldiers

"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!!"

Words From the Soldiers

"You reinforce our beliefs that people care that we are out here keeping America’s enemies as far away as possible from our loved ones."

Words From the Soldiers

"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."
