Magazines for Troops was formed to fill a common request by deployed troops - a need for reading material. We ship boxes of magazines to our deployed men and women who are serving America in Afghanistan and throughout the Middle East. But boxes don’t ship for free, and postage to serve 181 units is a constant battle – currently running over $2000 per month. $12.35 will ship a box containing apx. 40 magazines with a variety of titles to remind these brave warriors that they are not forgotten, and to put a smile on their faces! Will you help make our heroes smile? Donations are tax-deductable, and can be made by check or securely through Paypal at www.magazinesfortroops.com . While you’re there, check out some of the testimonials from our troops. Another way you can help would be to place a magazine collection bin at your church or business. For more info, contact Donna at 261-9408. YOU can help make a difference!
