2. Pen Pal Programs
If you don’t have the funds to put together care packages or send store bought items, look into Military Pen Pal programs. There are far too many soldiers out there who have no family to communicate with. It must be incredibly lonely to be in a strange place with no ties to the community you come from. There are several websites that can help connect you with a soldier; my favorite is this one: anysoldier.com.
