DOUBLE YOUR DONATION! Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employee giving. Most programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some may double or triple the amount of your gift. Some even provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours.
Since 2007, the mission of United for the Troops has been to bring a little comfort to service members by sending the comforts of home they miss most while serving abroad. Thanks to an engaged community of volunteers and committed contributors, we have shipped over 28,000 gift boxes to deployed American heroes, connected their families here on the home front, and continue to serve the needs of these heroes when they return home and transition to life as veterans.
We thank you for your continued generosity and unwavering support. As a 100% volunteer-led nonprofit, all proceeds benefit our troops. Please call us with any questions at 845-729-4239, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and learn more about us at unitedforthetroops.org.
