Sam’s Club Donation Drive

Military Missions at Sam's ClubMilitary Missions has scheduled an upcoming donation drive for Saturday May 21 and Sunday May 22 at the Sam’s Club on New Circle Rd in Lexington. This donation drive is one of our very important events as it brings in many of the needed items which enable us to send care packages to our growing list of deployed troops.

In order to make this donation drive a success, we need YOUR help. We plan to be at Sam’s Club collecting items from 10am – 4pm on Saturday and Sunday. We hope that you will consider finding a way to come out and help us support the troops.

Stop by and help us man the table or shop for a few items on our list during your regular shopping and drop them off as you exit. Remember the sacrifice being made for each of us by our deployed troops and their families. We can all afford to sacrifice a little to show them how much we support and appreciate their efforts.

Even if you can’t make it out to help us, please share the information with your friends and family so they have the chance to participate. You can also donate online at www.military-missions.org/donate.

If you would like to become a volunteer for Military Missions or have questions, please email us at volunteer@military-missions.org or call or text 859-221-9477.

As always, we are extremely grateful for your support of our troops through Military Missions, Inc.

Calling All Cards! Calling All Cards!

CARDSWe are in desperate need of cards!

Do you love making cards? Or writing letters? Are a member of a group? If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you can help us out!

We send hundreds of cards to our deployed troops throughout the year. Right now our supply is too low to cover our numbers for the next bulk shipment.  We need general cards… NOT Christmas or holiday themed. You can write a quick note of appreciation or thank you on the inside. The troops also LOVE cards made by young kids.

Do NOT date the cards/letters. Also, we do NOT need the envelopes.

If you would like to help out, please send the cards to us at:

Military Missions, 3650 Boston Rd, Suite 138, Lexington Ky 40514

Thank you!

OPSEND ornament

Monday, November 2, 2015 – 6:00 to 8:00 PM

(Click to register)

Kentucky National Guard Armory

4301 Airport Rd., Lexington, KY

We are about a week away from our BIGGEST care package assembly of the YEAR!! If you have never attended this event, then you don’t know what you’re missing! We will be packaging THOUSANDS of items, within a couple hours, to send to our deployed troops. We need YOUR help to make this event a success.

On Christmas Day, our troops will not be gathered around the tree at home with family and friends. Instead, they will be standing watch over each of us, protecting us from harm and defending our liberties. Each one is a parent, a sibling, a child, a spouse, a friend, and an American. We need to send them encouragement as well as our thanks.

Maybe you’re wondering… HOW CAN I HELP?

First of all, POSTAGE money is always needed! Even if we have shelves full of stuff to send, we can’t send anything if we have no money to pay the shipping. Many people think we can ship care packages for free… but that is not the case. It’s costs an average of $10 per box for postage. Our goal for Operation SEND Christmas is to ship around 3,000 packages… you can do the math! So… with that being said, monetary donations are ALWAYS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!  (Click here to donate.)

We depend upon donated items to fill the care packages. These items include personal care items, drink mixes, snacks, candy, puzzle books, and of course cards & letters. We also need quart size bags to put these items in. You can view our list of suggested items to donate HERE. You can bring items to the armory that night or bring them by our office during business hours.

In order to make Operation S.E.N.D. Christmas a success, we depend upon help from schools, churches, organizations, businesses, and individuals from all over the USA. We would love for YOU to also be involved! If you can attend, please register HERE.  If you cannot attend, consider making a donation, either care package items or monetary. Even if you cannot afford to make a donation, spread the word with your friends and family.

If you listen to the news reports, we are made to believe that our troops have returned home. However, we have MORE names on our care package list now than we EVER have. We can’t let them down! Help us send a package to each and every name on the list!

Thank you for partnering with Military Missions to support our troops!

Help Needed for Christmas Packages

ITEMS NEEDEDTwas three weeks before OPSEND… with volunteers in a flurry.   Care package items are needed… and needed in a hurry!  

Things are really buzzing around the Military Missions office as everyone is preparing for the largest care package assembly of the year, Operation S.E.N.D. Christmas (OPSEND). We expect this to be the largest one yet! If you are in the Lexington area, we hope you will be able to come out and participate as we wrap items and assemble baggies for the 100’s on care packages that will be heading overseas to our deployed men & women. Our list of names has continued to grow this year, despite the news reports that our troops have come home.

We are in need of several items to make sure we can send a Christmas package to every name on our list. If you would like to donate some of these items, it would be GREATLY appreciated, and remember your donation is tax deductible. You can drop the items by our office or ship them to us at 3650 Boston Rd, Lexington Ky 40514. Items are needed before Oct. 30th if possible.

ITEMS CURRENTLY NEEDED THE MOST

Puzzle books (about 5×7″)

Hard candy (individually wrapped) such as butterscotch, peppermint, Jolly Ranchers

Beef sticks such as Slim Jims (short ones around 5″ fit best in baggies)

Quart size baggies

We will continue to post updates to our website and facebook page as OPSEND draws near, so please check back often! Also, if you plan to attend OPSEND, please click here to register.
