Our main focus is to reach those with our monthly “We Care” packages who receive little or no support from the home front. We aim to send “that little bit of home” to assure they are not forgotten. Forgotten Soldiers Outreach is committed to our U.S. servicemen and women in all world theaters, for as long as they are deployed.

Programs:

FSO is always educating the public of the importance of our troops, community involvement and ways to help our mission. We are always in need of Donated Care Package items, Letters of encouragement (We have an educators link on website under Help dropdown), Volunteers and Funds !!! Our thrift store that was opened last year accepts gently used items for us to generate funds for our mission, and to also be able to provide FREE furniture and household items to many of our homeless veterans who have recently transitioned and have received housing.

My kids and I have volunteered numerous times with this organization and I've never had anything but great experiences. When there, you can see how much heart, love and dedication this organization brings to helping the troops at home and overseas. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. Numerous times, they've had speakers come in to tell the volunteers just how much of a difference they make. While I find that the act of volunteering is rewarding in itself, actually seeing those it impacts personally creates a truly meaningful connection that makes a powerful impact on myself and my kids. Thank you, FSO, for making a difference everyday!

One of the most caring and amazing non profits ever taking care of our military! I have had the honor of volunteering and collecting for FSO and would do it any time - all the time! The time spent by everyone for FSO is such a blessing! Love FSO!

FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS I HAVE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF HEADING FUNDRAISER EVENTS FOR FORGOTTEN SOLDIERS. THEY PROVIDE SUCH A MUCH NEEDED SERVICE TO THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO DEFEND OUR COUNTRY. THERE ARE MANY INDIVIDUALS IN THE BATTLEFIELDS AND BEHIND THE LINES THAT HAVE NO CONTACT FROM HOME AND NEED A BOOST TO THEIR MORAL AND GIVE THEM MUCH NEEDED SUPPLIES AND TREATS. THIS ORGANIZATION GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND TO PROVIDE AS MANY ITEMS AS NEEDED.

For some time i had been trying to find a way to write notes to soldiers. I had sent letters out on my own to another group who would then send them along to some one some where. However, with this site, i really feel sure that my letter will actually get to a soldier who really might want and need the mail. Since i started writing last year i have sent at least 5 letters. I go on the site and i can see the thanks and pictures from the men and women who receive the letters and care packages. It is great to know that my letters are being sent, and to see the faces and read the words and be able to know i might have made a tiny difference for one of them. I don't need the thanks, but i like to know that the ones who serve us are getting what we send. I was fortunate enough to have enough extra money this year that i was able to donate a little, and just knowing that a smile is out there because someone got cookies, or deodorant, or a razor, or something they need fills my heart. This is one of the best organizations i have ever seen. I just wrote another letter before writing this review, and i am so happy to say i will continue to write as often as i can, thanks to this great crew who works tirelessly to get our troops the things they need from home. They are doing a wonderful job and i am proud to be able to use their site and to have donated to them this year.

This organization goes above and beyond to serve our military overseas and at home! It is extremely rewarding to take part in the packing events and making donations. The response from the recipients is outstanding. I am so proud of Lynelle and her crew for their hard work and determination to make sure we all never forget OUR soldiers and all that they do!

I was lucky enough to be able to participate in packaging the boxes to be shipped to the soldiers overseas. What a fun a rewarding experience to be a part of!

Excellent organization that provides care packages to deployed military service members. Forgotten Soldiers outreach is not a "bloated" non-profit with highly paid staff. Monies raised go towards shipping the monthly packages and package contents are donated by members of the community. They have been serving the troops since 2013!

I have been a volunteer for FSO for many years. I am amazed at the outpouring of support for this organization, from the number of people who volunteer to help pack care packages, maintain our warehouse of donated goods, to schools that write letters to our soldiers and to all the volunteers who work long hours at fundraisers to raise funds to send the care packages. Our recipients, many who don't get any packages from home, are so grateful for what we do!

This is by far the best organisation that I have dealt with I'm and united states army sergeant deployed in support of operation enduring freedom Afghanistan they send out care packages to a lot of my Buddy's and also to me it helps build moral and keeps us feeling great knowing that people are taking time out of their day just to write to us and also send us small items that help out while deployed!!
