Our Mission | What We Do
Packages From Home is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to send care and comfort packages to deployed American military heroes stationed in active duty theaters around the world, as well as to facilitate activities that elevate morale of all veterans.
Where Do Donations Come From?
Packages From Home does not receive any local or federal government funding. We are 100% funded by generous people like you. A wide range of individuals schools, scout groups, service groups, fraternal orders, small businesses, and major corporations all support our troops by sponsoring Packing Parties to pack and fund care packages for our troops overseas. We actively fundraise by applying for private grants, and participating in employer/employee giving programs.
Our main mission, established in 2004, has been and always will be devoted to sending care packages to our U.S. military heroes overseas. In 2012, we expanded our programs to include Packages For Hope, serving local transitioning, homeless, and at-risk veterans with food, hygiene, and recreational items. We expanded programs again in 2015 with the introduction of our Bones From Home program, serving military K9s and local veteran service dogs.
