Our adopted Soldiers in Afghanistan

Founded in 2003, Hugs for Soldiers is a ministry of Duluth First United Methodist Church, Duluth, GA.  Our program is dedicated to offering comforts from home and brightening a Soldier’s day with a care package, card or letter of encouragement. Our “adopted” troops, who are deployed thousands of miles away from home, need to be reassured that America cares about them. We provide love and support for our nation's military who make daily sacrifices for the freedom America enjoys.

Supporting our Troops since 2003

Girl Scout cookies are a great symbol of America.  In fact, Girl Scout Cookies continue to be one of the most requested items for care packages!

You can help put smiles on the faces of our Troops by donating Girl Scout cookies. Show how much you appreciate their service by giving them a little Taste of Home. Learn More

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the “Hearts & Hugs” program in 2020.  Over 20,000 Valentine Cards were received for our Troops from communities all over our nation. 

This year, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the collection and assembly of 2021 Valentine Cards over continued concerns around COVID-19.  Due to the thousands of cards that come in, our volunteers need ample time and space to open all cards, sort the cards, and repack for shipment to Troops overseas.  This process takes an amazing amount of time and energy to ensure that the cards make it to our deployed Troops by Valentine’s Day.  We feel prioritizing the health and well-being of our volunteers is important. 

Our team of volunteers are working behind the scenes by themselves or groups of 2-3 to continue packing care packages for our deployed Troops.  During this time, please continue to support our troops with us.
