Thank you for your interest in sending Cards and Letters to our deployed Soldiers overseas.

  • All letters and cards will be screened by Hugs for Soldiers prior  to being placed in our care packages.  

  • Multiple cards and letters should be mailed in the same envelope or box to us.

  • Keep your message upbeat and positive. Express thanks for their service, dedication, sacrifice, and/or time away from home. Our troops need to be encouraged.

  • Sample Salutations:  Dear Hero, Dear Brave One, Dear Service Member, Dear Warrior.  

  • Ask questions; however, do not discuss death or killing.

  • You may include your own mail or email address so recipients can choose to reply.  STUDENTS:  Use first name only. TEACHERS/LEADERS:  you  may use your name and contact information.  (Recipients may or may not write back; please do not be disappointed if you do not receive a response.)

  • Be creative. Draw pictures and talk about you.  Keep cards and letters to a size of 8 1/2" x 11" or under for ease in shipping and distribution.  You can use colorful construction paper within the paper size limit.  

  • DO NOT USE GLITTER OR CONFETTI as it will contaminate the entire package.  Plain and foam stickers are great.
