Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I,
Here am I;
send me.

We offer two ways for you to help our deployed Soldiers.

Of course the easiest way to facilitate a Care Package shipment is to make your secure, online donation here through PayPal


If you choose this option, your contribution will either furnish postage for the packages or buy supplies that have been chosen and customized for each deployed unit. We would purchase goods for you, package them, and ship them.
This is the simplest option for you.


 

However if you want hands-on for your Care Package, there is a list below of suggested items. You can use this list to buy products that (1) you can mail to us for processing, or that (2) you can mail to a Soldier who you may already know, or (3) bring to our office at the First Baptist Church of Hingham if you are near or in Hingham, MA.
