What is Operation Sunscreen?










In 2007, Karen Irwin, the wife of a retired Missouri National Guard Soldier, founded Operation Sunscreen-Care Packages for the Troops Foundation, sending thousands of Care Packages to Soldiers deployed to Iraq, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Kuwait.

Operation Sunscreen – Care Packages for the Troops Foundation is a non-profit public charity, volunteer-based corporation, funded entirely by private donations. 90% of these donations are from Missouri individuals who adopt Soldiers! Operation Sunscreen’s goal is to send out as many Care Packages as possible that contain toiletries and letters of appreciation to Soldiers deployed to Afghanistan and Kuwait where the conditions are tough.

With your donations, letters and through collection drives, Operation Sunscreen is able to reach so many Soldiers in the U.S. Military who greatly appreciate our gifts to express our respect and appreciation for all that they sacrifice.
