Items HOME Collects and Send to the Troops

All care packages that HOME ships to our soldiers are filled with items donated by the general public. The following list is an example of the types of items that we collect. Keep in mind, these items must be able to fit into a USPS large flat rate box (12 1⁄4″ x 12 1⁄4″ x 6″).

We cannot send liquid items that will not fit into a 1 quart zip lock bag.
Also, we absolutely cannot ship pressurized items, like aerosol cans OR any glass containers.
