Sending Care Packages to Military Members

Published: 08/24/21 | Updated: 09/23/21

Thank you for your desire to support the well-being of our service members. The Department of Defense does not operate a program for members of the general public to send care packages and holiday mail to deployed service members. However, those wishing to send materials to service members can do so by contacting any of the various non-DOD military service organizations who still do this work. One example is the American Red Cross, which has a Holiday for Heroes program run by their local state chapters.

Family members, extended family members and friends who want to send care items to their military member should follow these tips provided by Military OneSource.
