Ways to give in November: Adopt a Soldier

Yesterday we celebrated Veteran’s Day.  In honor of our military, consider having your family “adopt a soldier” for the holidays.  You can find wish lists and information on how to send packages and where to send packages here on Any Soldier.  Many soldiers are in need of basic hygiene items that you probably have on hand already in your stockpile such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, soap, deodorant, razors, and feminine hygiene products.  They also are looking for snack items.  You can find more information ideas of what to send in care packages here.

Keep in mind that the USPS recommends that you mail packages to Iraq and Afghanistan by today (11/12).  You can find more information on USPS recommended mailing dates here.
