When a service member is deployed, the entire family serves. The spouse is left to take care of the family, the home, work, pay the bills, mow the yard, the list goes on and on and it can be a very stressful time for the entire family, especially on holidays and birthdays. One way we can show that we care is to help the family send care-packages to their deployed loved one.

Support Siouxland Soldiers hosts 3-4 care-pack events each year for military families to customize care-packages for their loved ones. It’s one less worry the military family has to endure and gives them an opportunity to meet and build a support network with other families also going through a deployment.

To date, Support Siouxland Soldiers has shipped over 5,700 care-packages. With more deployments scheduled for 2019 and 2020 will you join us in this critical mission to support our Troops and their families when they need us the most?

Each care-package costs $18 to ship and roughly $30 to fill with snacks and supplies. Click here to sponsor a care-package for a deployed Siouxland Service Member
