626 Gives: Forgotten Soldier
The 626 team created 100 care packages that included: Toiletries, Snack Food, Baby Wipes, Batteries, Drink Mixes, Forgotten Soldier Newsletter, Girl Scout Cookies, Letters of Encouragement, Comic Books and other items.
Also, every care package includes a Troop It Forward Box. A Troop It Forward (TIF) box is a 30-day supply of toiletries, along with information on how an individual can register to be a recipient. When the actual recipient receives the care package and sees that someone at mail call does not receive anything, they can in turn give them the TIF box. To date, over a third of our recipients are the result of the TIF program.
