Operation Thank our Troops and Veterans Holiday Care Packages & Gift Baskets

by | Nov 3, 2021 | Community

Santa Clarita is sending care packages to local troops overseasand making care baskets for hometown veterans in need. Help out, if you can, so they’re not forgotten during the holidays. Christmas and Hanukkah care packages will be assembled and mailed through December 9th, and winter packages will continue through January. This heartfelt community effort has been proudly hosted by the local 501c3 non-profit Prayer Angels for the Military for 18 years.
Local businesses, and community members are being asked to help, if they can. Items are needed to fill the care packages to our local troops, and shipping funds are needed. Cards to our troops, from all ages, are also needed to go inside the packages.
Items and gift cards are needed for the gift baskets being prepared for our hometown veterans in need. Cards of appreciation are also needed to go inside the gift baskets.
Most needed items for the care packages are Jerky, Slim Jims, beef & cheese logs, trail mix, crackers, sugar free gum, hard candy, chocolate, smooth peanut butter in plastic jars, Ritz type crackers,
single serving snacks, cookies, drink packets for water bottles, granola & protein bars. Little Debbie/Hostess cakes (min exp dates 2-3 weeks away). Air activated hand warmers. Look for holiday items
to make the packages extra special. Winter scarves & beanies are requested for troops and veterans (hand made or store bought).
Tax-deductible funds for shipping are badly needed. Checks should be made payable to and mailed to Prayer Angels for the Military, 21609 Oak Orchard Rd, Newhall, CA 91321, or donate online at: https://www.prayerangelsforthemilitary.com. Donation bin for items is available 24/7 at the same address.
