In August 2003, Operation Soldier Care (OSC) began sending care packages to our troops serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Persian Gulf area. OSC was implemented through many Bible & Life classes at First Baptist Church Naples.
When OSC received a soldier’s name, the soldier was adopted, which means OSC sent care packages to that soldier until he/she returns home.
OSC had sent shipments during the year, including Thanksgiving and Christmas. The average care packages weighed approximately 13 pounds and they were stuffed with the soldier’s favorite food items and snacks. While the goodies we sent were very important, the most important thing we provided is hope through Jesus Christ… through Bibles, Christian books and magazines, cards and letters.
If you have a family member or close friend still serving in Afghanistan or Iraq please email me at [email protected] and we will add your soldier to our care package shipments until our funds run out, or until the end of their deployment or until the end of 2019, which ever comes first.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to all of our volunteers and to those who provided financial support. OSC has had been a big success because of your dedication and generosity. To God be all the glory!
