We are so fortunate the U. S. Postal Service has made their "Flat Rate" priority boxes available to everyone for the asking, on-line at or phone 1-800-222-1811.  These will be shipped to you in lots of 25.  Also some Post Office locations have them loose and you can pick up a few at a time. 
We use the priority mail large flat rate box, which measures 12" x 12" x 5 1/2". As of January, 2017 these boxes cost $17.35 to ship, regardless of weight.

Three to four times a year TAMMS holds box packing parties.  These are usually combined with a "Potluck" luncheon. The location varies so please check our Upcoming Events.

See our Donation section (below) for items most requested by your Troops.


The people of Arizona are most generous to TAMMS. Your Troops and we thank you for your continued support.
Through fundraisers and donations we are able to fill and mail at least 60 to 70 packages every quarter.  These packages go to deployed troops of all military branches.
In order for TAMMS to fulfill all our projects we need to hold fundraisers through out the year.

TAMMS is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) and donations are tax deductible.
100% of donations are used to purchase care package items and
for the postage it takes to mail them. We send packages to ALL branches of the military.
Please consider making a donation thru PayPal
