We currently have to buy most of the items we ship. The products for our care packages cost anywhere from $20 per box (food) to $60 per box (hygiene). The shipping cost for each Regional Rate B box is $10.60.
J.O.S.H. will be shipping approximately 100 care packages per month during 2018 and we need help to be able to support our troops.
Donations of care package items and monetary donations to help purchase items/offset shipping costs are greatly appreciated. We rely upon fundraisers and donations to support our troops.
We are a volunteer led and operated 501(c)3 Charitable Organization and donations directly benefit our troops.
Sponsor a Care Package
Would you like to ship a care package to one of the Soldiers on our shipping list, but don't know how or don't have time? We will do it for you! You can provide to us the information you would like included in your package.
For a $25 donation, J.O.S.H. will ship a care package consisting of coffee, coffee creamer, and individually packaged snacks and foods.
For a $50 donation, we will ship a care package that consists of good quality body wash, lotion, shaving gel, razors, deodorant, etc.
J.O.S.H. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and since you will be not be personally receiving any goods or services for your donation, it will be fully tax deductible.

Run a Collection Drive
You can find the list of items we normally ship on the Care Package Info page of this website. We will provide the collection bin and the printed information for you to use to let others know about your collection.
Become a Corporate Sponsor
As a corporate sponsor, you can help support our troops by pledging a monthly monetary donation of $200 or more, by sponsoring a fundraiser, or by donating the above listed products for our care packages. Please note that J.O.S.H. does not supply care package items for packing events at your company unless a minimum sponsorship of $3,500 is pledged. Please see the section below for more details.
Organization/Company Packing Events
We are often contacted by local companies and organizations who would like to host packing events. We can only supply products for this type of event to organizations/companies who make a monetary donation of at least $3,500. This is the minimum amount it costs J.O.S.H. to purchase care package items and pay the shipping on 100 care packages. If your organization or company would like more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
J.O.S.H. requires a minimum of 60 days notice if your company or organization plans to sponsor and host a packing event.
Companies and organizations that wish to purchase their own care package items and pack the boxes are welcome to do so. However, we can only ship your care packages if you also donate the shipping costs. The funds J.O.S.H. raises are used to purchase and ship specific items. If we ship the packages you have prepared and paid shipping on, your packages are sent as though they are coming directly from you.
Monetary donations can be made on this website by clicking the donate button at the top of any page. Donations can be made via Paypal or with a major credit card.
If you would prefer to donate via check, our mailing address is Just Our Soldiers' Helpers Inc., P.O. Box 954031, Lake Mary, FL 32795.
We always welcome donations of care package items.
