Frugal reader Ann recently e-mailed me to tell me about an organization she is involved with that you may be interested in.
Soldiers Angels is a non-profit organization of nearly 200,000 volunteers in over twenty different teams and programs who have developed unique and effective ways to support members of the U.S. military. To date, the volunteers have sent tens of thousands of care packages and hundreds of thousands of letters to deployed service members.
You can do anything from send a supportive postcard to a soldier, to providing foster care for a soldier’s pet, make quilts for wounded soldiers, and more.
As Ann pointed out in her e-mail to me, many of the freebies and steals we get online and in stores make excellent additions to care packages for our troops. It’s an inexpensive way to show them we care.
