Support Our Mission

Our greatest challenge is the cost to ship our boxes of cards. Each box costs $22.80 to ship and holds approximately 400 cards. We rely on the generosity of our card makers, individual donors, local companies and American Legion or other Veteran-related groups. If you are willing to help, please reach out to us at

If you are willing to help support this worthy cause, please send a check to: Making Cards for Our Troops, 3123 Riva Road, Riva, MD 21140
