Desert Angels

*Special Request Items*

The heat is above 100 every day, soldiers need Neck Coolers that fit to line Kevlar Vests & Helmets.

Who We Are

We collect, pack, and mail needed items to our Troops. Always including words of encouragement and hope. Adding extra items to pass out the native people of the countries that our Troops are stationed in. Throwing in some fun stuff or school supplies to give to the children. In other words we show our Troops they are not forgotten in deeds, not just words. Changing our world, one box at a time ~  Making a difference!

OCSC is an Offical Drop Off Location for Supplies.  We schedule “Packing Parties” to pack the supplies in mailboxes sending them to troops.  If you’d like to help us with this mission, please see the list of supplies needed below.
