2020 Troop Care Packages

Were assembled 2/9/20 and shipped 2/10/20, thank you for everyone’s donations, support and help! Not too late if you still want to help, we had to dip into our reserves to help cover shipping costs. To make a donation, please go to the bottom of this page.

Hands On Heroes is working to get care packages, including valentine cards, sent to deployed soldiers. Please scroll down to see if you may be able to help with any portion of this effort. Thank you!

MASSAGE THERAPISTS: Are you able to give seated massage on February 9th? Please use this Sign Up if you can join us! Thank you.

SEATED MASSAGE will be available as we set up and assemble care packages to send to deployed soldiers. Stop in to say hi and/or pack a bag, and/or receive a seated massage. (First come first served.) Also a chance to bring any last minute donations, the earlier the better. The 7th is still preferred to allow more time to organize and prepare.
