We currently have to buy the items we ship. We shop for the best prices, but the average cost of products in a J.O.S.H. care package can be as high as $64. The current shipping cost for each Regional Rate B box is $11.48.
J.O.S.H. will be shipping at least 180 care packages per month in 2020. 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. The average cost of items and shipping for 180 care packages is over $11,000 per month.
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. We want our supporters to 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.
