Where it all happens....


Our office (left) is in an upstairs room of the church office of the First Baptist Church of Hingham, which is detached from the church building itself. Donors bring their contributions here. If the office is not open, they can place their donations in the Donation Trunk (left) on the porch.




Once the donations are moved to our “Command Central” room upstairs, we start to work immediately... organizing, preparing, wrapping, packaging.



When the packages are completed and taped tightly shut, the boxes move downstairs near the computer and printer. The next step is to buy online postage for each box and run labels, generate customs forms, produce office reports.





Next the labels and customs forms are adhered to the Care Packages and they are stored in the main hall (left below) of the office to await carrier pickup by the USPS.




Care Packages must be addressed to individual deployed Soldiers. We call these individuals our “Point Leaders.” They receive our Care Packages and then distribute them to their entire units.



For safety and security, all Care Packages are processed at our office. This also allows customization of the packaged items as requested by our troops.

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.

Isaiah 6:8

Sad will be the day for any man when he becomes contented with the thoughts he is thinking and the deeds he is doing - where there is not forever beating at the doors of his soul some great desire to do something larger; which he knows he was meant and made to do.
      Phillips Brooks

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
     Philip James Bailey
