Since March 2003, a small group of mid-Michigan men and women have met regularly
To box up packages for Active duty, Reserve & Guard military serving overseas, see About Us for a little more information.

Many currently or have had immediate family members serving.
Others have discovered a wonderful way to show gratitude to all those in uniform.

We're all volunteers and represent all ages, political views and backgrounds.
We're a non-profit group; all monies donated are spent for postage and contents of the packages,
see the events page for 2018 to see when we are meeting next or where we have a display set up.

If you would like to see a few pictures, you can start Here.

Sometimes, money is collected for special projects, see Family Support.

Thank you for visiting our site! Please feel free to stop by anytime!

There are links at the bottom of each page to help you find your way around.

2nd: How does MHSTT get the names???

Here is how it works.

Any member of America's military serving in Afghanistan, Iraq or that part of the world
can get their name added to our group’s mailing list, by family, friends, Battle Buddy &&& etc.
A phone call, e-mail or snail mail {MHSTT P.O. Box 320 112, Flint Mi. 48532} is all it takes...

Once we receive their name and mailing address, we will then pack them a box at our next meeting [sometimes sooner]
and send them a welcome letter & questionnaire.
Because of the time they need to respond, we will send up to three boxes.

However, we MUST have either the questionnaire mailed back [a pre-addressed envelope is included]
or an e-mail with the questions answered before we can send any others.

There are two main reasons for this:

First, when they respond, it tells us that the address is valid and the box was received by the person it was intended for.
Second, we need to know their return month.

ANY & ALL information received from them [or you] is kept in the strictest confidence and CAN NOT be given out to anyone!
When we have the answers to the questions on file, we will continue to mail our care packages to them for the rest of their tour.

Since boxes do not follow them when they rotate home, we normally stop mailing approximately
6 weeks prior to their Rotation home date.

If you have someone or know of someone who is serving in Iraq, Afghanistan or that part of the world,
please let us know so we can add them to our mailing list.

So the short answer is ANYONE can add someone's name [From anywhere & any Branch of the military !!!] to our mailing list - ALL FOR FREE...
Still not sure --- Contact us and ask!!!

As of the end of 2017 MHSTT has mailed well over 20,000 Boxes full of smiles...
To 2,000 DIFFERENT people, some of them for more than "Several" deployments...

This is our next raffle.
As you can see, it is for Two great prizes............


This is one of the ways we raise money.
This year [so far] it costs $13.60 or $17.35 for the "Flat Rate" boxes.
The #7 box is priced by weight [and can be much more]
That is just for the postage to mail each box.
Then there is labels, tape, copy paper, ink BLA BLA BLA and what is inside them ;)...
Did I mention the cost of postage etc. is going up again next year.....


It will also help "Marines Taking Care of Kids" with the cost's of running their 501c program.
If you would like a [some] ticket(s), just let me know and we can make it happen [I'm your Huckleberry ;)].

We all seem to get wrapped up in our day to day problems and just getting by.
Taking for granted all the normal things we think we deserve.
Not realizing the cost paid by a group of men and women some 6 decades ago so we can have the freedoms we enjoy.
Make no mistake about it, the folks who have fought since WWII and are even now fighting for freedom deserve our thanks.

But this group of hero’s is getting smaller each minute...
"Before You Go" is a wonderful tribute to The people who fought for Freedom in the Second World War

USO



The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country,
throughout their service to the nation.
For over 75 years, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization
to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform.
From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments,
and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.
