Thank you for your interest in supporting Good to Go Care Boxes. We are a registered 501(c) 3 non-profit. Our mission is to provide snack and hygiene boxes to United States Marines, soldiers and sailors deployed throughout the world. Every donation we receive is put towards filling the boxes or postage. All administrative costs are donated; it is a one hundred percent volunteer run non-profit.
We support them during their entire deployment so they receive approximately four of each box.
The hygiene box always contains a full sized toothbrush and travel sized toothpaste, Scope/ Listerine, dental floss and Chapstick. We provide razors, shaving gel, deodorant, shampoo, soap, sunscreen etc.
The snack boxes are a combination of protein (beef jerky, nuts, tuna, granola bars, Clif bars, peanut butter) and some fun snacks to remind them of home (cookies, crackers, candy).
The majority of these kids are 18-21 years old; many away from home for the first time. They are often helping to support their family or have families of their own. Some have no family/parental support; it is commonly believed by the public that they are issued everything they need; not true! As a Marine Mom I quickly learned how little is provided to them and it became my mission to help support these brave young men and women.
“How can I help?’ is my most common question; you can organize a collection of needed items, write notes of support and encouragement or we can even organize an onsite packing day. Monetary donations for shipping costs are always needed!
These brave young men and women deserve our support. Good to Go Care Boxes is committed to making sure they know they are not forgotten.
