Hello and Welcome to our site. Here is the story on how it all came into play.
The Brings Family of Marblehead, MA starting sending care packages to their towns deployed in 2006. We started with about 4 names and sent these packages to say “thank you for your service” and to let them know that they are not forgotten. As word spread of what we were doing, we had to start having collections for items that were needed and/or wanted by the soldiers. (See our Wish List.). due to the fact that we now had over 50 recipients on our list.
C.A.P.T.S. (Calling All Patriots Troop Support) was founded for this reason. We are a newly established non-profit organization (501(c)3) (pending IRS approval) that sends care packages to our service men and women who are serving overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our goal is to make our packages personable and have that special feeling of “home”. Our motto: ”If we can’t bring them home, we will bring “home” to them.”
Thank you for visiting our site.
Mark, Janet and Erin
