JOSH buys the items we ship. Our volunteers spend many hours every month shopping for the best prices, but the average cost per package is $70 each including shipping. Note: The current shipping cost for each Regional Rate B box is $12.47.
JOSH will be shipping at least 140 care packages per month in 2022 (if finances allow). We need help to be able to do this. We purchase full size brand name hygiene items and really good snacks for our care packages.
We heavily rely upon fundraisers and monetary donations to help purchase items/offset shipping costs.
JOSH is a volunteer led and operated 501(c)3 Charitable Organization and donations directly benefit our deployed troops. We have no paid staff and we strive to keep administrative costs as low as possible. We want our supporters to know their donations are being used for their intended purpose.

No donation is too small. All financial help is greatly appreciated!
