AdoptATroop Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit volunteer group of friends whose goal is to support American and Canadian troops now fighting for our freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan. Founded in November 2007, our purpose is to raise money and/or needed items to fill care packages and send the packages to our troops overseas.
We sent our first packages, 20 in total, in November 2007. As of July 4, 2012, we have sent 3,069 packages to Iraq and Afghanistan military men and women including Marines, Army, Navy and Air Force.
Our packages cost between $60-$65 to fill and send. We use military kits which did cost $10.95, now $11.35 and larger boxes were $12.95 and will be $13.45. View the list of Package Contents to see what is included in the care packages.
In addition to asking for donations, we sell Christmas Spiders during the Christmas holiday and God and the Spider, a true story, for which materials and labor are being donated. All monies raised goes to filling the care packages for our troops.
Through this small endeavor we are thanking our troops for the sacrifices they make everyday to protect the lives and freedoms of many who will never know their name.
We thank you for your support and please remember that Freedom Isn’t Free. We are so lucky to live in a country that is Free and these brave men and women have stepped forward to fight for that freedom.
