Initiative Care Package

Initiative is seeing what needs to be done and doing it. There are men and women overseas in the military defending our country. They miss their families and the comforts of home. Together as a family, pack a care package or two for a local military volunteer organization. These organizations always need volunteers and people willing to make care packages. You can find an organization near you online.

Here are some items to pack:

  • High-quality socks
  • Soap (shampoo, body wash, face wash, etc.)
  • Toothpaste, toothbrush, and floss
  • Deodorant (travel size/non-aerosol)
  • Lip balm
  • Foot powder
  • Baby wipes
  • Sunscreen
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Pain-relieving topical cream
  • Vicks® VapoRub
  • Hand Warmers
  • Sewing kits
  • Lens cleaning cloths

Be sure to make a beautiful card to thank them for their service! Write notes of encouragement, and even have younger family members draw pictures to add to the care package. Then be sure to follow all instructions from the specific organization you will be sending the package through.
