I wanted to share with you the wonderful program I created called the Mama Cindy Soldier Program.
I began a program of sending "Care Packages" to our military men and women stationed overseas on
February 14,2005. What a perfect date! The first packages were shipped out on February 18, 2005.
It all started with one soldier in one unit and now 10 years later, this program has sent
"Care Packages" to over 7,000 soldiers in more than 250 seperate units stationed in Iraq, Afghanistan
Korea, Japan, Kuwait, Qatar, China, Turkey, Germany, Cuba, Egypt, Africa, Italy and United Arab Emirates.

In Each Package I send to a new soldier, I enclose a letter of how I was given their APO address and
that they are now adopted by Mama Cindy. I make sure to enclose information on how they can contact me
by internet or by regular mail by enclosing a pre addressed note card just incase they don't have access
to the internet. I encourage them to hand out the snack diddy boxes to their fellow soldiers if they would
like to be adopted by Mama Cindy. I tell them to "Make A Wish!" Each Unit has different needs and desires
depending on where they are located. It has to be smaller than a breadbox! For example, one unit asked for
sardines in oil. The sardines are high in protien and the oil was good for digestion. I was happy to grant this wish.
I also taped a package of baby wipes to each can of sardines with a note that read: Mama is taking care
of both ends! It is so important to send a bit of humor in each package.

It is now 2017 with more soldiers being shipped overseas. I try to reach the soldiers that aren't
getting much mail and try to send them a bit of home. I call it a "Hug In A Box!" If I put it in a package
something to help a soldiers physical, mental, emotion and spiritual needs, maybe,just maybe, that soldier
will be able to complete their mission safely and return once more to their loved ones at home. So many
times they write: "It is always nice to know that someone other than family cares and thinks about us!"

The Mama Cindy Soldier Fund is always in constant need of monetary funding for shipping the packages to
the Troops. I use flat rate boxes so that shipping one package to a soldier is $15.05 no mattter how much
it weighs or where it is shipped around the world. If you would like to make a monetary donation, you can
make your checks out to Mama Cindy Soldier Program and send to Mama Cindy, 5002 Old Bald Hill Road, Hemlock
New York 14466. If you would like to donate supplies, contact Mama Cindy at (585)367-3780 for a time for
either a pick up or delivery. Your donation will be used to ship a little bit of home and comfort to those
so far from their Loved Ones.
