You Drop It, We Ship It. Our Donation Drop-Off Locations are Ready for You!

Do you or someone you know travel a lot? If you're like most of us, you probably collect all the little hotel freebies -- the shampoos, conditioners, lotions, manicure kits, and so on. If you're also like most of us, they usually get tossed into a box at home and rarely used. Meanwhile, our men and women deployed to remote locations often do without these types of items. We hear from many that their bases don't have a PX or they're out in forward areas on patrols and return to stores that are already sold out. Surprising Fact: The US Military doesn't operate like a hotel! You may not even have realized that simple things like shampoo, soap, feminine protection, and other personal care items are not routinely available for some of our troops.

You can help us fix that!

We're pleased to announce two new Product Donation Drop-Off sites in the Saline and Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area! You'll find a drop-box at these locations and you can swing by them anytime to donate toiletries and other items we need for our care packages. 

7025 E. Michigan Ave (at Moon Rd)
Saline, MI  48176 
Jafferson Computers
4005 Carpenter Rd (at Ellsworth Rd)
Ypsilanti, MI 48197

Download the attached flyer to learn more about this program and see a full list of the items you can drop off for our troops!  

Please share with family, friends, and co-workers who might be interested in helping ... it's a great project idea to share with scout troops, church organizations, or even your employer if they're open to it. If you have a batch to donate but can't get to these locations, please email us at contact@heartsinabox.org and we'll try to arrange other options for you!

Thank you for your help in supporting this new effort ... and thank you to our friends at Brewed Awakenings and Jafferson Computers for being our eager partners!
