Anyway, please sign me up for a spot in all 4 groups and I will donate all the cards. Thanks for doing this, Heather.
There are many other organizations that send cards & care packages to troops, or give you the information about a unit and you send the boxes yourself. Some of these organizations are very localized and some are national and non-profit.
Give 2 The Troops (Give2TheTroops - Supporting Deployed U.S. Troops With Care Packages
) is a national non-profit.
is national and they provide addresses for units where you can send any kind of care package.
There are two other nation-wide organizations that take cards but I can't think of them right now.
is a very comprehensive program. As you can see from their website, they do much more than just send cards to troops. Through them you can commit to "adopting" an individual soldier for a year (I think) or you can do other short term projects to help.
Personally, I've been getting names & addresses of units through AnySoldier.com for several years now. I like to be able to choose my own unit (Army, Navy, etc) and where they are located (Afghanistan, Kuwait, etc) to send a variety of goodies.
