What does a monetary donation go to?
Many people wonder what their monetary donation goes to. We often get supplies donated and are very grateful, however the boxes themselves are $12/box to ship for the postage alone. Monetary donations typically cover this expense. Checks can be made out to Packages 4 Patriots or you can send them money through Paypal at
