50,000 Essential Care Packs to Hospital Workers

1st Goal - $250,000 - 10,000 Kits 2nd Goal - $500,000 - 25,000 Kits Overall Goal - $1.1M - 50,000 Kits Hi everyone, My name is Chelsea Mandello. I am a U.S. Navy Veteran and the founder/CEO of an organization called Troopster. Normally, we send thousands of care packs to deployed U.S. service members. The care packs are filled with great snacks, cards, toiletries, and games - the full gamut of support. We are able to ship these packs around the world to troops, no matter where in the world they are, from Afghanistan to 1,000 feet under the sea. Today, however, we have a new and immediate threat of COVID-19. Our frontline heroes in the United States right now are Doctors, Corpsmen, Military members, Nurses, Volunteers, EMTs, Policemen and Firefighters who are in need of gloves, masks, and items to keep them safe on the frontlines.  With the funds we raise we'll be able to use our facility, located in Norfolk, Virginia, to pack and ship these kits of surgical masks, gloves, antibacterial travel soap, protein/energy bars, snacks, stress balls and more. We have the ability to support these healthcare heroes but need help affording the upfront cost of shipping and production. Our small veteran staff is ready to start making and shipping these packs out, with your help and support. Thank you for helping to make this happen. Sincerely, Chelsea
