Together we can make a difference...

Operation Sunscreen is a non-profit, volunteer-based corporation, funded entirely by private donations. Operation Sunscreen’s goal is to send out as many Care Packages as possible that contain toiletries, snacks and letters of appreciation to soldiers deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Thanks to your generosity, Operation Sunscreen has sent more than 4,000 Care Packages to our Missouri National Guard "Citizen Soldiers" deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kosovo since its inception in July 2007 through December 2009.  To date, 90% of our donations are Missouri individuals reaching out to our soldiers and adopting one, two, or three at a time. Please know that your small sacrifice makes a huge difference to our soldiers! Operation Sunscreen will continue to send Care Packages until all our soldiers are home. Would you be willing to help? Together we can make a difference in the lives of our deployed Missouri National Guard "Citizen Soldiers".
