O.I. ® is a nation-wide 501(c)3 organization that has no paid volunteers.  Everyone up to our board members and National President do their jobs out love for the military. 


O.I.’s mission is to support as many troops serving overseas as possible during their deployment, along with veterans here at home.  For many service members their care packages are the only communication from “home”.

OI volunteers in centers across the country work with schools, churches, synagogues, civic groups, corporations, and anyone willing to contribute to make our mission possible. Get involved here

OI is Department of Defense approved. OI doesn’t compete with Military Exchanges (PX’s) by sending small amounts of goods.

For military personnel interested in receiving care packages please go to Military Registration.
