How do I send a care package?
Have you ever asked yourself this question? If you have a loved one who is deployed with the military, the answer is likely yes.
Today, you have two options for sending care packages: the old way, and the Troopster way. The old way involves going to the store, buying the things you think your deployed love one wants, finding a box that fits it all, going to the post office to figure out how to send military mail , and working your way through a maze of customs forms and compliance requirements to ship overseas.

How to fill out shipping address for military
Filling out the shipping address section for your service member can be tricky if this is your first time. We want to help this process to be as easy as possible for you so that you and your troop can feel great about the Troopster experience. All of this is if you have an address from your troop or for a deployed individual. If you don't have an address and want to send a care package to a troop, then checkout our Adopt a Troop page.Watch Video
Troopster makes the best care packages. Creating a care package on this site is less expensive and easier than doing it yourself. Plus, Chelsea (the owner/founder) knows what deployed troops want because she's active duty herself. She offers the best snacks that won't melt or crumble into dust; and she packs it up in a way that the food won't end up tasting like the accompanying deodorant or shampoo.
Troopster even offers donation boxes for people who want to support the troops but don't know someone in the military. Chelsea sends thousands of donated care packages to deployed service members each year. My husband was thrilled when his command received surprise care packages donated by Top Golf. It really makes a difference to the military members to know the people back home appreciate them.
This is a great organization for individuals or businesses to get involved with. There's several opportunities to donate money or supplies, help pack and decorate the boxes, and write letters to our military.
Sent my first Troopster box out to my favorite young Airman. All I can say is WOW! After 24 years of being around the military and sending many many care packages this was the best. It was just as personal and the items were the same as what I would purchase at the store. I can skip the confusion of customs forms and so much other stuff that can get in the way. This is truly fantastic. Thank you Troopster team!!!
I absolutely LOVE Troopster!! They have amazing care package supplies for your loved one being deployed! I set up an account to get the supplies sent to me automatically, no worrying, no hassles! The packages arrived very quickly after the order is placed and it covers everything my husband needs while he's away! In the last care package sent to me there was a letter from the founder of Troopster, thanking me for my continued support to a fairly new company! Such a thoughtful thing to do, and I appreciate her kind words! I was stressing about what to send to my husband, until I found this website! Thank you so much for your service and easing the care package process!
