The Adopt-a-Service Member program brings a touch of home to deployed service members.
The military provides deployed service members with basic needs, but personal, comfort and entertainment items must be obtained by the service member. Often, service members deployed overseas do not have access to comforts such as their favorite hygiene items, coffee, snacks and entertainment, either because the items aren’t available locally or because of financial hardship.
Through the Adopt-a-Service Member program, the Red Cross selects groups that have self-identified as desiring support and sends them customized care packages based on their specified needs. We welcome volunteer support purchasing the list of items as well as helping us to sort, organize and package the care packages to send overseas.
