Baker’s Dozen Listing

As the needs of the military change due to smaller and fewer bases and less area for storage, we too must adapt what we are putting in our packages.  The requests are for more food items and I-Tunes cards has been expressed to us and so in an attempt to honor the needs of our troops we will no longer be accepting books, magazines, CD’s or DVD’s to include in the packages. By no means does this suggest that those still deployed do not continue to need our support and we hope that we can continue to count on you to show our military they are not forgotten. Please see below for our current list of most needed items and note that this list does change often.  If you are organizing a collection, please Click Here for our collection guideline document in Word format and be sure to contact   collections@osotamerica.org prior to starting your collection.  To deliver a collection to our warehouse, please contact collections@osotamerica.org for the address and to arrange a date/time for delivery.  Thank you!!
