Military Care Packages | Troopster.org
Do you know a deployed Sailor? The US Navy has a long and storied “mail call” tradition. Make sure your Sailor receives the Navy care package he or she deserves! Troopster, a veteran-operated business, lets you buy care packages, personalize them with letters and photos, and send them to your deployed Sailor- all in just a few clicks. Show some love from home today, and make sure your Sailor leaves mail call smiling!
A seafarer’s saying has it that “time and tide wait for no man.” Ever forget that monthly trip to the post office to mail a pack to a deployed loved one? Automate this task by picking Troopster’s subscription option when you check-out, and your monthly Navy care package order will fall into the same veritable category of reliability as time and tide. Plus, when you subscribe, you’ll receive 10 percent off that pack!
Even if you don’t know anyone in the service, sending a Navy care package will put a smile on a Sailor’s face! With Troopster Donation Corp, our 501(c)(3) registered charity, you can adopt a Sailor and send a care package overseas!
Deployed Sailors don’t all have loved ones at home to send them care packages, so we help out by letting these service members request free care packages. We keep a running tally of Sailors who have requested these services, and, when a generous American adopts a Sailor by donating a Navy care package, we make sure these donated packs make a Sailor’s day at mail call.
We’re glad you asked! Troopster founder and CEO, Chelsea Mandello, actually founded Troopster while serving as a Navy Petty Officer. It was during a particularly difficult deployment at sea that Chelsea got the idea for this organization. Sending Navy care packages was just too difficult, and an organization didn’t exist to help with the process. So, returning to homeport, Chelsea decided to change that, bringing her experience as a Sailor to bear and building a website to let friends and families easily send personalized Navy care packages to deployed Sailors!
