Once a year, our community has the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of active duty U.S. troops serving in harms' way through the Tikkun 4 Troops project.
NextGen, a department of Jewish Federation & Family Services, in collaboration with Operation Gratitude and JCC Cares, sponsors this project, and we need your help to make it happen!
We’re collecting items from our Amazon Wish List to create Patrol Care Kits for care packages. These packages will go to active duty troops currently deployed in harm’s way for use when they are away from base for several days at a time.
We are making it even easier to donate care package items this year by using Amazon Wish List (we are not collecting individual items in drop-off bins this year). You buy the items through Amazon, and they will send the items directly to us. We will be packing the items on June 24, so please make sure the items you purchase will be delivered by June 18.

Looking for other ways to give?
In lieu of items, we are also accepting monetary donations, which will be used to purchase any additional items needed to meet our quota.

Join us as we spend Sunday morning, June 24, assembling 5,000 packages for our troops overseas. We will work together in assembly line formation to consolidate all the items that we have collected on our Amazon Wish List into gallon-size Ziploc bags. There will also be an assembly line for families with young children to volunteer at their own pace. All families and all ages are welcome at this event. We will also be writing thank you letters to our brave heroes.
When: Sunday, June 24, 2018
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Where: Merage Jewish Community Center, 1 Federation Way, Irvine CA 92603
