During the Holidays, deployments are especially difficult on our deployed Soldiers and their families.  It’s not easy being half a world away from your loved one especially on Christmas. While others are planning family get-togethers, decorating the house and shopping for presents, our deployed Soldiers are working in remote locations under extreme conditions to protect and serve our Country.

That is why Support Siouxland Soldiers has been sending care-packages every other month,  for over six years!  We invite our Military families and the Siouxland Community to come and customize a care-package or two for their Service Members with photos, letters and cards from home, then fill the boxes with snacks and hygiene items that were donated by the Siouxland Community. Then we fill out the custom forms and ship the care-packages. Receiving a box full of goodies with cards and photos helps boost the spirits and let the Service Members know that we are thinking about them.  To date, Support Siouxland Soldiers has shipped over 4,000 care-packages all across the World.  If you are a Military family who would like to send a care-package to a loved one serving overseas for the Holidays, please email their address to siouxlandtroops@gmail.com and join us on Thursday, Dec. 6th, 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. 514 Nebraska St. Downtown Sioux City. If you are not able to attend, we will pack and ship a care-package for you.

We wish all of our Military families a joyous holiday season and are thankful for their extraordinary service to our Country.
