Adopt-A-Troop Military Care Package Program

Troops LOVE care packages! The Valley Resource Center sends numerous care packages to deployed military members the first week of every month for our Adopt-a-Troop program . We have sent over 1,000 pounds of snacks and items this past year and our list continues to grow each month! 


Most of our adopted troops are stationed in the Middle East.  If you or your organization can help, we need items such as food, instant coffee, and protein powder as well as shipping costs. If you wish to donate items, please see the suggested list below. Please note that many of our units are serving in the Middle East where it gets very hot so please do not donate items that may melt. Letters of support for our military are always welcome and appreciated as well.

Is your organization interested in Adopting-A-TroopContact us to find out how you can assist a specific unit for the duration of their deployment by providing care package items, shipping costs, and letters of support! Also, contact us for more information about how your organization can join us at a care package event.
