HeroBox Needs Postage For Holiday Packages

Doug Evans writes on the website, "Hard times have forced the HeroBox organization form its offices and now the charity works from a storage building as it builds care packages and sends them to troops overseas."

According to Doug, "Coupled with a decline in cash donations as well as the rising cost of postage, the charity worries it will fall far short of its goal of sending 1,000 care packages to the troops by Christmas."

HeroBox founder Ryan Housely is quoted as saying, ""We have thousands of soldiers in our data base. We have thousands of items. We have volunteers to pack them. But we don’t have the money to ship them because the postage is 10, 11 12 dollars a box. We need monetary donations right now to ship these off to the troops."
Each HeroBox contains food, hygiene items and small supplies. All of the items in the boxes are donated by major contributors and school children from across the country. Starbucks donates thousands of packages instant coffee.
