Teddy Bears for the Troops is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that sends care packages to deployed military and encourages their families.
Bringing joy to deployed military is not just a mission, it is a passion for us. Our military spends countless hours working to ensure our freedom. We take the time to show our appreciation by sending toiletries, cookies, a teddy bear and a pillowcase. We even sent freeze pops to firefighters at Kirkuk, Iraq!
We have sent teddy bears to soldiers recovering from wounds incurred while deployed to encourage them also.
Several times distraught children of a deployed service member have been given a teddy bear. It brings comfort to know Mom or Dad sent them a bear from so far away.
