USO Care Package Program
Space is always at a premium for our service members. They’re weighed down with gear to keep them prepared for any challenge they might encounter. The USO Care Package Program is designed to provide service members with a connection to home through a snack or toiletry care package designed to best suit the needs of our military men and women.
The Snack Pack and Toiletry Pack are ‘desert tan’ in color and constructed with a durable nylon material that has a M.O.L.L.E. system on the back of the pouch for attachment on most military issued gear. The Snack Pack is assembled with a mixture of healthy treats, drink mixes and a collapsible water bottle. The Toiletry Pack comes equipped with a wide range of travel-sized hygiene products.
The USO Care Package program harkens back to the USO’s early years, when Americans packed boxes full of little “tastes of home” to keep deployed service members connected to the people, places and things they cherish. Those small gestures provide the comfort and care that make a difference for service members stationed far from home.
To date, the USO has shipped 44,483 Care Packages – 22,712 Snack Packs and nearly 23,771 Toiletry Packs.
“…I also received a bunch of USO goodie kits in the mail that everyone is loving. The M.O.L.L.E. attachment (woven button snaps) are super.” – Senior Airman who picked up a snack pack while passing through a USO Europe location.
“I’m a single mother of a US Marine, currently doing his second tour. I can’t tell you how happy and surprised when I received a brief text from my son that he had received a package from the USO! Your package truly lifted his spirits. Thank you so very much! I do everything I can to support my son and keep his spirits up as he fights to keep our country safe. It was so nice to hear of your kindness.” -Susan Fountaine
