Notes:

Post cards are also great to send in the packages. You can pre-address the postcard to yourself or your organization with a note asking the service member to please let you know if they received the package.
You DO NOT have to put a stamp on the post cards — the service member can mail them for free back to the states.

Wrap items well when packing soap/toiletries in the same package as food items. In warm weather, it’s best not to include these in the same package!
