Great organization that really came through for my Soldiers upon our arrival to Afghanistan.

It’s great to know that we have the support of those back home.

My family has been going for a few years. We love the packing! We've even been able to do a few Shop n Drops! We get there and talk and work and time flies because we are with friends! It just makes feel great knowing that someone special is going to open this package and see all the goodies, see the notes and know we care!!! Love the Wreaths Across America ceremony! Everyone should try it! You will love everyone! It's addicting!!! See More

Having a Soldier that deploys, I know what getting a care package means and I know what how a Soldier feels when he gets nothing. Thanks for making sure no one is forgotten.
