FRIENDS OF OAA

   *  Troopbox Ministries - This local group ships care packages to any soldier they can get names and addresses for. Address info comes from local friends, families, neighbors, and from soldiers TBM has already served, reaching out to those who often have no other contacts from home. They ship from the first month they receive new contacts until the service people return home. Many of the soldiers they serve have received monthly packages from their basic training days through 4 to 6 deployments.
   TBM ships everything from personal care products to shirts, socks, underclothes, (helmet liners, gloves, neck gators) for winter as well as snacks of all sorts, canned food, small cans of fruit, dried fruit, candy, gum, puzzle books, playing cards, hand held games, etc. Their many volunteers and supporters make their loving outreach possible. They have served hundreds of service men and women through the years, and have sent out many thousands of care packages. Contact Diana Lawrence (513-490-2398) with the appropirate mailing address, and TBM will see that your loved one will get a TBM "care package" once a month until they return home!
