Become a Ship(ping)Mate for our Deployed Troops!!

As family and friends who support all members of the active military and local veterans, Semper Fi Parents of the Hudson Valley is involved in many projects to do their small part. Shipping needed items to our deployed troops to show support and love…during the holidays through ‘Operation Kindness’ as well as throughout the year, is a large part of our work. Packages are also shipped to our wounded troops in hospitals as they endure their wounds and challenge themselves to heal.

Many of our troops are positioned at posts where there is no access to supplies other than the bare essentials. Many of our troops are with others who never receive a care package or correspondence from a loved one. For every name/address of a currently deployed troop, we will send several care packages for sharing. (Which is what these men & women do!)

We are grateful for all who donate needed items, see list below, during local collections. Shipping the packages is a huge expense for which help is always appreciated!

Help us bring a smile to a wounded or currently serving hero. This is not about believing in war… only about showing love and support to the brave men and women who are away from families and loved ones because they believe in our way of life.

Be a SHIP(ping)MATE by covering the cost of a care package and good wishes!
