The purpose of Treat The Troops is to let deployed American military persons know that people at home are remembering them. Home-baked cookies and other comfort items, along with a note of thanks, are sent via the U.S. Postal Service.
Additional information from their website:
"The boxes are addressed to a specific soldier at an APO (Army & Air Force) or FPO (Navy & Marine) number. We need at least 2 months notice to be sure the cookies arrive before they return home. (Sorry, we cannot honor requests for specific kinds of cookies--we send a variety in each box. All bags of cookies containing nuts are labeled accordingly. We are also not able to honor other allergies, such as gluten.)"
