We currently have to buy most of the items we ship. The products for our care packages cost anywhere from $35 per box (food) to $65 per box (hygiene). The shipping cost for each Regional Rate B box is $10.60.
J.O.S.H. will be shipping an average of 135 quality care packages per month during 2019 and we need help to be able to support our troops. Since we purchase brand name items for our care packages, each packing event costs roughly $7,000, including shipping costs.
We heavily rely upon fundraisers and donations. Monetary donations to help purchase items/offset shipping costs are greatly appreciated.
J.O.S.H. 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 so our supporters know their donations are being used for their intended purpose.
Donors are welcome to visit the Financials Page of this website to download copies of the Just Our Soldiers' Helpers 501(c)3 Approval Letter, 2018 Form 990-EZ and Florida Charitable Organization Registration.
