So, this is me, asking for help. Mission Soldier Adoption doesn’t have the items necessary for helping out some of our heroes who are in need right now. We can either ignore their requests because we don’t have the items…but we thought it would be more fun to ask to see if we can get these items.
I normally post the positive feedback from our Troops, letting everyone know their items and financial contributions are greatly appreciated—here and overseas.
-“Truly the support of this great nation is beyond reproach”
-“Myself and the rest of the Marines greatly appreciate your time and effort”
-“Thank you for all your love and support from back home!”
-“I want to extend a very sincere “Thank you” for supporting us”
-“Thanks for your time, and thanks for the support! You all show your appreciation for the troops and I would like to take the moment to thank you for the support you’re giving us soldiers, sailors, airman, and marines! Thank you!”
Here’s what I’m hearing from the Troops overseas, and it’s breaking my heart to not have the items to help these guys and gals out.
-“We’re packed in tight with 14 people in a 12X12 space”
-“Live on a BIG OL’ HILL here and really don’t have much support from the unit because of our distance and seclusion”
-“My squad works nights so we miss out on 2 chow times”
-“I really know the guys in my squad and one didn’t get anything over the holidays, another is getting almost zero support from his wife and family back home”
-“Military members that are assigned to my unit are not in need of anything. However, we get too many wounded warriors that are in need.”
My question for you…can you help-either with contributions or financially? Do you know someone, or a group, or a company that may be willing to help with donating items or financially?
Here’s what our heroes need most right now:
Power Bars/Meal Replacement Bars/Nuts/Trail Mix/Jerky (helps their tummies)
Chapstick (helps their lips)
Hand Sanitizer (helps their hands)
Wipes (you know what this helps)
Drink Mix Packets they can add to a water bottle (helps their hydration levels)
Toothbrush/Toothpaste/Floss (helps their teeth)
Gum/Mints (helps their mouth)
Shampoo/Conditioner/Body Wash (helps their head/body)
Letters/cards of support (helps their spirit)
Prayers (helps their soul)
We need your help to help our Troops.
If you do not have the money to help but you have a little time, would you be willing to pass our request on to those you know who may be willing to help (maybe your dentist would donate items).
If you do not have the time to pick up items but you can help financially, we would be happy to do the shopping and pick up the items to fill the care packages.
As always, thank you for your time and attention.
