We at Holiday 4 Heroes and our supporters thank you for your service, keeping us safe and the sacrifices both you and your families are making for us!
Thank you for the kind messages!
"The care packages you recently sent arrived safely yesterday. I must say there is an aura of serendipity surrounding items that you send. For example two days prior I was asked to keep an eye out for JIF peanut butter and then you send two big jars. The heater in my room in on the fritz and we are in the middle of a deep freeze (lots of snow and ice) and then low and behold last night I had two new additional blankets to burrow under. I was also asked for whey protein powder and you sent a tub. You bring smiles to many folks here every day and they always leave with a treat thanks to your hard work. Have a fantastic day."
This message and pictures were sent to us from a marine whose unit was the recipient of our comfort and care packages
"I want to thank you SO much for all of your time, effort, care and fundraising that went into sending 175 care packages to deployed Marines halfway across the globe! Every Marine here sincerely appreciates the items you raised money for, gathered, packaged and sent, as well as the morale a care package brings during the holiday season.
Thank you again, for everything you have done for us!"

"The wonderful care packages you spoiled us with again have arrived safely this week. The stand outs are the protein powder and iTunes gift cards. Due to lack of extra-curricular opportunities both the gym and downloading movies from Apple to watch are the few activities the air force members can partake in and you took care of both. Thank-you ever so much for all your hard work. Have a fantastic day."
Kind Regards, Postal Officer Bagram Airfield
"Thank-you so very much for the lovely care package that arrived here safely. Our mail room is a tent on the edge of a runway in a valley surrounded by mountains. I hear daily how much our care package table means to the members. Have a great day."
THIS IS A MESSAGE FROM A MOM WHOSE SON AND HIS UNIT RECEIVED OUR PACKAGES
Subject: Thank you! "I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for our son and his unit stationed in Afghanistan. I cried the morning I woke up and saw this picture he sent us of all the boxes you have sent. Unfortunately, he is not pictured as he had to take the photo, but what is pictured is the reality of deployment.... They are so young! Sometimes we get lucky and we can catch our son off duty and awake to take a video chat call. This past Saturday was our lucky day. As we chatted, he brushed his hair, over and over....lol.... He said, I opened the box and saw the brush and that's the only thing I wanted. I'm so happy for the brush.
We send him boxes and he never mentioned a brush. I suppose he didn't realize what he missed until it was right there in front of him. We can never say thank you enough for making this deployment more bearable for our son and his unit: B co 4-17."
"I got a picture this morning! This is our son that you address the boxes to. Thank you!"
