Care Package Items List

Under the direction of Pease Greeter, JoAnne Schottler, 20,000 pounds of sundry items have been collected and shipped to our troops overseas as Care Packages, a long standing tradition among military supporters that dates back to our nation’s early wars.

Under Schottler’s leadership, the Pease Greeter’s initiative began in September, 2008 is now part of a program to bring our service men and women a little bit of home at their overseas assignments. Items have been generously donated by area residents and include a wide variety of goodies.  Troops receive two packages, each weighing about 15 lbs.  The cost to ship is roughly $1.00 per pound.  One package contains toiletries and sundry items and the other games, puzzles and fun stuff to do.

For those of you that have loved ones overseas or know some one who is serving, send or give one of the Lady Leaders their overseas address and each month, we will pick several addresses to send boxes to. Please make sure that they have a least 3 or 4 months left on their deployment, if they come home let us know, so that we can remove their name from the list.

Wal-Mart of Portsmouth, at their Lafayette Rd. location, is a sponsor of this program and has made available for purchase Care Package bags.  The proceeds benefit the Pease Greeter’s Care Package Program.  Look for the in-store display prominently located near the checkout registers. 

If you should bring your donated items to the airport, for security reason, do not bring them into the terminal but rather place them in the back of JoAnne's Schottler’s, burgundy, Isuzu SUV, located prominently in the parking lot.  To see a list of our soldier’s most cherished items, go here.
