This year, we have partnered with a cause very near and dear to our hearts. The Forgotten Soldiers Outreach seeks to boost the morale of our soldiers deployed and stationed overseas. Learn more about the Forgotten Soldiers Outreach and how you can help in this post.

What is the Forgotten Soldiers Outreach?

The Forgotten Soldiers Outreach started in October of 2003 as a way to send a bit of home to our troops overseas. Servicemen can be registered for the Forgotten Soldiers Outreach by a family member, friend, commanding officer or themselves. Soldiers registered for the Forgotten Soldiers Outreach will be sent monthly “We Care” packages filled with needed care items and letters of encouragement. This package can help to give out soldiers an extra boost of positivity and morale when they need it the most.

How Can I Help the Forgotten Soldiers Outreach

There are many ways to help the mission of the Forgotten Soldiers Outreach. Find a few below:

  • Donate packaged items: This organization accepts donations from all over the country. The care packages sent to these soldiers will also include hygiene items, toiletries, snacks and other goodies. Items that are currently on the needed list include:
      • Baby Wipes
      • Mouthwash
      • Dental Floss
      • Trail Mix
      • Oatmeal
      • Insect Repellent
      • Snack Storage Bags
      • Individual Packs of Nuts, Dried Fruit and Beverages

    Note: The organization will not ship alcohol, aerosol cans, pork products, hotel toiletries and expired items.

  • Write a letter: A letter of encouragement will be included with each care package. Letters of encouragement and well wishes can be filled out online.
  • Donations: We also accept donations for our care packages. Donors are able to set up a one-time donation, monthly donations or donate in honor or memory of another individual.
  • Involve your organization: If you are involved in Girl Scouts, work for a company that often sponsors organizations or are educator, consider helping us with our mission. We have resources online for how each of these groups can help. Writing letters and implementing a fundraiser is a great way to educate our youth.
