About Us

We personalize every care package to each adopted unit or service member.

If they need it, we will do everything in our power to get it shipped to them.

Holiday celebrations

Because holidays are especially hard when you are away from home, we make sure to ship our men and women abroad something special. 

We are always looking for new sponsors

We work very hard to make sure everyone gets something. Every donated dollars goes to prepare and ship our care packages. Please contact us bellow if interested. If you are an Amazon shopper, please select us as your favorite charity and Amazon smile will donate a percentage of your purchases back to us.

What we accomplished in 2017

Provided support to more than 20 different units

From a single person to entire Battalion, we sent packages to more than 20 locations, supporting more than 1000 soldiers, airmen, and sailors.

All year, continuous support!

While we make sure that all the holidays are covered more, we shipped care packages at a minimum on a monthly basis. You can see our most recent accomplishments on our Facebook page

We are making a difference.

The feedback we receive from our adoptees is incredibly humbling. It is the fuel that keeps us going

The little overhead we have is paid by our board of directors

100% of your donations are used solely for stuffing and shipping the care packages. 

Ran and operated by volunteers

Good hearted people who want to make difference in the life of our men and women deployed abroad

End of the year reporting:

As of November 2017, we received $11,000. 63% was used to purchase items to fill up the care packages.  32% covered the shipping cost. 2% was for website expense and 2% was for banking and accounting software expenses which were paid though donations by the board members. I will update the numbers as December closes.

We care about our armed service men and women.

We send personalized care packages to our adopted units most often deployed in harm's way.

Our adoptees:

We adopt entire units, brigade, or single individuals as needed. DRD's main mission is to lift the morale of our men and women deployed often in harms way and send them items that will make their deployment a little easier.
