Mission Statement

The mission of Packages From Home is to send care and comfort packages to deployed American military heroes who are stationed in active duty theaters around the world, as well as to facilitate activities that elevate morale of all veterans.

Description

PFH collects donated items from generous patriotic citizens, corporations and community

groups from all across America to create care packages for deployed military heroes. The items collected

include non-perishable food, personal toiletries and recreational items. PFH sends two completely full

flat-rate USPS boxes containing food and hygiene items to each service-person entered into our system. Each

package is hand-packed by our volunteers, who include Scout Troops, school students, corporate employees

and many long term volunteers. Larger packages of specialty items - books, movies, sports equipment,

playing cards, etc. - are sent to be shared at recreation centers on the military bases.

Monetary donations from individuals, corporations and community groups are utilized to cover the postage

for each package. Postage is the largest expense for PFH, with each package costing $14.85 to mail. PFH's

primary purpose is to provide food, personal care and recreational items to deployed American troops, at no

cost to them.

In 2012, Packages From Home expanded our program and volunteers began to fill Packages For Hope for our

veterans in need. With this addition PFH is now able to supply tangible necessities and hygiene items to

veterans who are homeless, or in jeopardy of becoming homeless. Also PFH has started Bone from Home which inteal sending care packages to the Millitary working dogs.
