    Treat Boxes & Post Cards

    Made our lst treat box on Friday and Packed it as full as it could be packed in the the USPS $12.50  Priority Flat Rate Box.
    So it is on it's way to Joel and his troop.  It takes about 11-14 days, maybe a little quicker, I am axious to find out who quick this one will get there and how good of shape the box is in!! 

           I want to start working on some Halloween Candy Treat Boxes for the troops, so hopefully donations will start coming in pretty quick!!  Everyone loves the candy from Halloween and we know they will be excited to receive these!  So please start those donations rolling in!! You can send me the candy, snacks, etc, or paypal any amount!!  Also please keep in mind every box is $12.50 to ship each one and they are not very big. They are USPS flat rate boxes, so we can get as much poundage as we can in each one, but the size is just not very big!   So please always include some for shipping!! :)

    We have to have your help so please start sending us items, NO chocolates, they will melt!!, Money is better for us because we know what will ship well.  Just email me if you want to ship me items to ship and I will tell you what to send! But you are what is going to make this a success!!! :)

    We Need Your States POSTCARDS!!!

    Please start gathering some fun, decent! state postcards and writing a little message on them to the troops and putting them in a envelope to me and I will be putting them in the treat boxes each time, what a great way to lift their spirits and make them feel like they are back at home! But we have to have your help!! So start looking for those postcards and mailing them to me in an envelope! :)

    Why We Send Treat Boxes

    Do you know how important mail and treatboxes are to the soliders that are overseas that are fighting for our freedom?? 

     They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day, every day!!  We can make a difference in their lives!
    You donating to this wonderful cause, means you care!!

    Reasons why we need to help show them we care!

    • We need to show our support 100%!

    • * They risk their lives every day!

    • They live in excessive heat all the time!

    • They do jobs that you or I wouldn't!

    • * They pay doesn't equal out to their jobs!!

    • They live in a place where most of the people don't speak a word of english.

    Important Facts About items for the treat Boxes!
    Post cards are also great to send in the packages. You can pre-address the postcard to yourself or your organization with a note asking the service member to please let you know if they received the package.
    You DO NOT have to put a stamp on the post cards -- the service member can mail them for free back to the states.
      Wrap items well when packing soap/toiletries in the same package as food items. In warm weather, it's best not to include these in the same package.
