    I'm not sure where you are but if you are close to a military base/post you might want to contact someone on the base. The PR person can connect with a squadron or other support agency.

    We are close to several bases and military hospitals. Care packages are always appreciated and I believe the USPS does not charge postage - rules might have changed.

    My sons have also been involved with gathering used clothing and shoes to be sent to children in Iraq. We also gathered school supplies.

    Through our church we have helped make soldier boxes - boxes filled with "stuff" to help soldiers while they are recovering. We have filled the boxes with calling cards, playing cards, microwave popcorn, stationery, individually wrapped snacks, doodle pads and crayons (helps keep the soldiers children busy), and DVDs.

    Cards to soldiers who are in hospitals recovering or in rehab are always appreciated. Good luck - this will be a meaningful project for your students and their families.
