Care Packages to Hometown Troops During the Coronavirus Pandemic

by | Apr 30, 2020 | Community

Community support is needed to continue sending care packages to local troops overseas. Due to COVID-19, Prayer Angels for the Military suspended Santa Clarita’s monthly assembly days for care packages. March 7th was the last assembly day for all ages to gather, fill, and decorate the St. Paddy’s Day care packages. Then by April 4th, Suzon and Dale Gerstel had prepared 104 Easter care packages at their home. Filled with goodies, blessings, love & appreciation from their own hometown.
Mailing out the last 20 boxes was a struggle, as postage funds were not coming in. Care Packages will continue to be filled and mailed, as donations come in.
Help out with a donation, if you can. Tax-deductible postage funds are badly needed. Donate online thru PayPal at, or mail to: Prayer Angels for the Military, 21609 Oak Orchard Rd, Newhall, CA 91321.
Thank you cards and letters of appreciation are needed to go inside the care packages. Our troops need to know that their community cares for them. Cards can be mailed to the address above, or dropped off to 24/7 donation bin/same address, as safe to do so. Contact Suzon or Dale: 661 799-8865 or email: Get additional information on more ways to help, community service hours at your own home, and more ways to help.
