Apr 01, 16 NEXT BIG PACK OUT PLANNED !! Sunday June 5th!!! – Sponsors needed!

It’s all about the Troops – Military Care Package Donation Drive Summer Edition.

All Age Family Friendly event!

Sunday June 5th at the Emporium, 9 Railroad Ave, Patchogue.

1 pm till 7 pm. Free buffet. Live music, DJ, 50/50, Silent Auctions.

$5-$10 suggested donation at the door to which helps to fund shipping costs for the care packages.


This event is All about Our Troops. Not only will we be collecting items but also sorting donations, packing boxes, along with making cards at the Kid Activity Area,

There’s only so many ways we can show Our Troops that we support what they are doing, a care package filled with all the little things from Home seem to be the best way.


To show our appreciation to the Men and Women serving, we suggest bringing items that can be shipped to the Troops. Or making a donation to cover shipping costs.


What should you bring?

This event has a special purpose, there’s a 5K annual run by our Friends at Airborne Tri Team in July, and while they are running here in the United States, there will be 600 Military Troops running the same day in Afghanistan. Those Troops need running shorts, tank tops, socks, running jackets ranging gin size from small to XXL. There will also be special medals and t-shirts purchased for the 600 Troops (the prices of those are $6,500), they will be shipped overseas along with items collected at the pack out.


What else will we be shipping?

Items such as personal care items, coffee, individual size snacks, socks, beef jerky, tuna fish and chicken packets, protein bars, trial mix, new magazines, DVD’s, travel size games, you can think of it, they can use it. Remember its summer time, so also water guns, tubes of sun block, etc.

There’s a complete list of the Boots on the Ground NY website


Or if you can chip in for shipping this event could create 1000, 1500, 2000 care packages maybe more.

That’s a lot of packages full of items & Love that supporters of the troops are bringing down. Now that’s also in the range of $10,000 – $20,000 to ship them out. So we can use some shipping sponsorships. Any donations are tax deductible, Boots is a tax exempt IRS recognized 501c19 charity. Donations can be made on our website at  or can be mailed with a check payable to Boots on the Ground NY, PO Box 675 Bellport NY 11713, with care package event in the memo line.
