And just like that, 2018 is over and 2019 is here. Although the year is gone, the needs of our soldiers deployed overseas are still there.
But… before we prepare for upcoming events and shipments, let’s reflect on those from last year. The following is email correspondence regarding the final shipment of 2018:
BR SOLDIER OUTREACH is so excited to let you know that a total of 15 boxes will be coming your way. There will be 8 bulk boxes (items too big to put in 1 gallon baggie and or smelly toiletries, etc) and 7 of the boxes will contain 127 individual bags for you to share with those on the vessel, especially if there are some that don’t receive much mail,. We had an awesome group helping us with your shipment!
I have attached some pictures of us putting the care packages together so you can see what is coming your way! We would ask that you may email us pictures of ya’ll opening the boxes and/or give us some responses (pre-addressed envelopes are enclosed in individual bags) so that we may share with BR SOLDIER OUTREACH supporters.
Would you please, also email us of confirmation that you received the boxes and provide us with a couple pictures when you receive your boxes so they can be shared with our supporters. Receiving pictures from our soldiers seem to lift our members spirits as our hearts go out to all of you fighting for our freedom, as well as to validate that the packages are reaching our soldiers.
When you are back in Baton Rouge, our supporters would love to meet you and personally thank you for your service. We meet at BJ’s Brewhouse , by the Mall of Louisianan on Bluebonnet Blvd, on the 2nd Tuesday of the month from 6-8. We would love to see you!
We want to thank you for all you do for our country!! May GOD Bless you!!

The plan is to go to the Post Office tomorrow with 10 boxes of toiletries, candy, pretzels, capri suns, ramen noodles, nutello, popcorn, etc. We are also sending a small Christmas tree with lights and ornaments, 50 Christmas stockings, and gell pens. They can decorate their own stockings and fill them with what the like from the 9 boxes of items.
I hope this works well for all.
Please have someone send us a couple pictures of the guys with their stockings and items so we may share with our supporters that their money is going to a worthy cause.
Have a Merry Christmas.
As soldier supporters, it is YOUR generosity and selflessness that makes this happen!
2019 is shaping up to be a busy year! Please join us at one of our Upcoming Events:
