Welcome to Keystone Soldiers!
It is very easy to say we support our troops, it is another thing entirely to show you support them.
We are a 100% volunteer non profit organization. Through our organization and website you can show your support for our U.S. troops by becoming a volunteer, holding a fundraiser, collecting items on our list for packages, writing letters and cards to our troops or sponsoring a care package (or several!). You may also make a donation to help with postage or you can sponsor a special care package to one of our troops. There are opportunities available for anyone interested in helping. Just pick up the phone and call us or send an email with Volunteer in the subject line.
Our website will be redirected to our Facebook page in the next few days so that we can install some new software and security updates. We hope to have the new site available quickly and our Facebook page will have all our calendar updates posted there. Thanks for your patience!
The information for writing to the troops is listed in the Penpals N Packages section. Please follow the instructions there. We do NOT give out any personal information on our troops or their families for their safety and security. Each letter you write will go to a different member of our military serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, Korea or any area we have troops serving our country. Most of the troops who receive your letters do take the time to write back however we cannot guarantee a response. The main focus is to send them encouragement and support from home.
**Our contact email is firstname.lastname@example.org! Please send ALL email communications to this address.
If you are in the military or have someone serving our country you would like added to our care package list or penpal list (or both) please send an email to: Keystone Soldiers and we will make sure they receive some letters and packages. If there is something special they need please be sure to let us know in your email. We will do our very best to get it in their care package! If underwear or T-shirts are requested please include sizes. You are also welcome to send us photos of your soldier no matter where they are from or where they are serving. We will add it to our gallery and post it on our Wall of Fame in our office.
We have 2 different addresses! Please make sure you are using the correct address so that your packages or letters do not get returned.
Monetary donations, inquiries, cards & letters for the troops should be mailed to:
Our current Hours of Operation are **WED & SAT 10 AM to NOON**. Donation drop off can also be scheduled by calling the phone listed above. Please try to give us at least 48 hours notice so we can have volunteers available to assist. We do have a donation drop off container in front of our office door if you need to drop small amounts of items when we are not in the office. Please do NOT leave money, DVDs or CDs in this container. You are always welcome to visit us at this address during the posted hours of operation. Visitors are not only welcome they are encouraged! There is plenty of work for all who want to help!! Our location is very easy to find. It is on Route 61 just 10 miles south of the Route 61S exit on I78 and 10 miles north of Reading, PA.
There is a link on the right side of the website where you can make a donation through Paypal or you can download our pledge/donation form and mail it to us. Your contributions are what keep the packages and mail flowing. We appreciate every penny! No donation is too small or too large and it all goes to shipping the care packages to our troops.
