Here are some non-military groups that provide comfort to our Military and their families:
The Troops list exactly what they need and you box it and send to their address. You can choose your country and branch on the site as well.
- Cup of Joe for a Joe – Green Beans Coffee
For $2.00, you can send hot or iced cold coffee to the Troops. And please note, if you do have someone on the Front Lines, there is a Priest that will bring a bag of Joe to them. You can also write a letter on this site as well. It really boosts the Troops spirits when they receive a cup of Joe from the Green bean coffee site.
- Ginger Betty’s
Last year, we got gingerbread cookies to the Troops via Beth at Ginger Betty’s. Beth at Ginger Betty’s baked them and mailed them. She is an awesome person! Everyone please think of ordering from her during the year. Her work is unbelievable. What she does for the Troops is truly amazing.Ginger Betty’s Bakery

If you cannot purchase items to fill the boxes, you can also donate to them so they will purchase your items to fill the boxes. There may also be a way to put a group effort together to fill the boxes as well.

Anyone can volunteer their time with the Walter Reed and help out our wounded veterans. You can see the Veterans by liking them via Facebook too.
