Care Packages

Care Packages

Our troops have been deployed to unstable territories and operations in 2023.

Honoring Our Military through Thoughtful Care Packages

In the past year, our world has become unsettled, requiring our troops to be deployed to volatile areas. We have received word from several deployed units, expressing the decline of moral amongst those deployed. Care packages help embrace our troops with some of the staples not provided and show just how much we as Americans support them.

We Require Your Help

As of January 1, 2024, the cost of postage to ship one care package has increased to $24.75. November 2023, AAS was blessed to ship approximately 200 boxes overseas, at a cost of over $4000. This increase of over $2 per box has made our mission difficult. Sponsor a package by simply choosing from these two options:

Postage: $25.00 Donation

Complete Care Package: $100.00 Donation

We take pride in showing our appreciation to the military by assembling care packages that make a genuine impact.
