With the help of volunteers across the US and the world who write letters, make cards and banners and hand made items to send our brave and selfless deployed military men and women, we hope to show them that we have not forgotten their great sacrifices for us by shipping special care packages to them. We also collect support from the community for their families while they hold down the fort at home.

Our Director's Spinal Chord injuries have become too severe, along with caring 24/7 for her 91 yr old father for past 13 months till he passed, made it impossible for her to continue her work of 6 yrs. Volunteers desperately needed to print letters, find Veterans who need them: "Please just write the letters you love to and don't donate anymore $ and I will do the best I can to give the letters to the military and disabled Veterans. It pains me to write this: but After caring for my father in hospitals,/rehabs for over 13 months and loosing him last month, and not able to find volunteers or any donations for over a year, I can't afford to pay to keep Letters to Soldiers going, this month I need to give $254 to my organization of my own money, and have no way to continue to pay for website, internet service, phone service for Letters to Soldiers, have no volunteers and think I might have to shut down the organization first of year. I gave all I collected this year to the 405th to distribute to UTNG and Army REserve, and passed out most of rest of letters I have received on Veteran's Day at Golden Corral to military and Veterans. It breaks my heart I can't do more. And please watch the videosbelow and see the wonderful volunteers that did everything we could do for the military and tell others."
