Military Care Packages | Troopster.org
Whether you want to use the services of our veteran-owned, for-profit business, Troopster Military Care Packages, or you prefer to donate to our non-profit, Troopster Donation Corp, a registered 501(c)(3), we’re here to help!
Our goal is to make the military care package delivery process, from purchase to delivery overseas, as easy and stress-free as possible for families and friends of deployed service members. And, as a sustainable business, we are able to purchase all of our goods at a discounted, wholesale rate, providing families and friends low prices while removing the hassle of packing and shipping in accordance with USPS customs compliance requirements.
Troopster Donation Corp is a non-profit corporation registered as a 501(c)(3) that allows individuals and corporations to provide tax-deductible donations of goods and money. These donations are then used to send care packages to deployed service members who, lacking support from home, request care packs directly from our veteran-owned business, Troopster Military Care Packages.
If you’d like to support Troopster Donation Corp, you can adopt a troop by purchasing special donation care packages. These military care packages are then shipped to an ever-expanding list of service members who have requested support directly from our website. Or, if you’d prefer, you can make a monetary donation directly to Troopster Donation Corp. These funds are used to pay for shipping donated care packages and purchasing care packages to ensure every troop and unit that requests support, receives it! And, as the board members and individuals who help Troopster Donation Corp are all volunteers, one hundred percent of these funds go to supporting deployed troops with military care packages.

"It was great! My husband doesn't have to find time to go to the px to get laundry supplies now!"
"I like the idea that families can choose what they want to put in a care package and then send it to you with no extra work. Thank you!"
"Getting a chance to work with Troopster and to take care of our troops is such a rewarding experience."
Established in 2015 by Founder, Chelsea Mandello
Troopster was founded Thanksgiving Day 2015, by, then active-duty, US Navy Petty Officer Chelsea Mandello.
Chelsea first had the idea of Troopster while serving as a photojournalist on board her seventh ship, forward-deployed in the Mediterranean to support anti-piracy operations. Chelsea noticed that the few individuals who received care packages were rarely able to use or eat the contents inside. After returning from deployment, she worked tirelessly to develop an easier process for friends and families to send military care packages.
As a result, she decided to help not only simplify the tedious task of sending military care packages, but also give an option for those service members without families at home to still receive care packs.
Troopster Military Care Packages is a web-based, veteran-owned business where family and friends of deployed service members purchase and personalize military care packages for their loved ones online.
You’ve come to the right spot! We’ve used our own military experience and feedback from the thousands of packs we’ve sent overseas to help us compile some outstanding care package collections for military friends and families to send their deployed loved ones. Take a look at some of the awesome themes we’ve put together:
As veterans ourselves, we know how stressful a deployment can be, both for the service member abroad, and the loved ones back home.
So, Troopster set up a military care package subscription option to make at least one task a little easier.
Sending care packs to your loved ones in the military can be an overwhelming process. Let us help! In our years of experience both receiving and sending packs, we’ve come across some pretty common questions. Please take some time to review our FAQs. And, if there’s an additional question or topic you think we ought to include, please let us know!
We love reading stories about friends and families at home sending military care packages overseas, and about deployed troops receiving them! Do you have a funny or heartwarming story? Send it our way so we can feature it on Troopster’s different social media platforms.
