Adopt a Troop
*This program will be suspended until January 5, 2021 due to a high volume of requests. If you have submitted your request before 12-4-2020, you will still receive your troop to adopt. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.*
Individual volunteers, classes, or groups can meet the needs of a hero directly by adopting a troop*; when you sign up, you are able to ship care packages and letters directly to an individual member of the armed forces.
Troops* available for “adoption” have given Operation Shoebox permission to release their mailing address to a supporter. When the troops sign up to receive a package, we do not ask them to tell us where they are from, what branch they are in or where exactly they are stationed overseas, we do not know this information unless they tell us.
If you are interested in sending letters and packages directly to our troops* please fill out the form below and our adoption coordinator will contact you with a troop within 3-4 days.
Thank you for supporting our troops deployed outside the USA and letting them know they are still thought of and cared about.
*A troop is a single individual from any one of the service branches
