Those who serve in the armed forces work their tails off for our country, not to mention risking their lives and leaving families behind for months at a time. So it’s pretty great when people who are not in the military recognize their service. We can help troops stay hydrated while they’re station in hot climates by sending individualized packets of powdered drink mixes such at Gatorade or Crystal Lite. Powdered coffee, such as Starbucks VIA and K-cups are also welcome. Send to– Operation Care and Comfort, 2731 North First St, San Jose, CA 95134. This nonprofit organization will ship them in care packages to our troops abroad.
