Warrior Holiday Care Packages


Help Dear Jack Spread Holiday Cheer to its Warriors!

Here at Dear Jack we are so grateful for our donors, volunteers, and supporters. Program expansion has meant that we are serving more LifeList and Breathe Now warriors than ever, all because of your support.

Dear Jack has officially launched its Holiday Warrior Care Package program for volunteers who would like to become more involved.

Please read the guidelines and suggestions below and then email your interest in participating to info@dearjackfoundation.org.


Dear Jack accepts care packages for its warriors currently in treatment for the following 3 holidays in 2018:

  • St. Patrick’s Day (must be received by March 3rd)
  • Halloween (must be received by October 17th)
  • Christmas (must be received by December 11th)
  • Items MUST be received at the Dear Jack office minimum of 2 weeks prior to the holiday so that items can be repackaged and shipped on time to the warriors. If items are received after the deadline, they will be held until the next holiday shipment.

    Please make sure all items are unbreakable, lightweight, and small enough to fit in a 14 x 12 x 3 box. And, please note Dear Jack does not monetarily reimburse volunteers for warrior care package items.

    What next?

    Once Dear Jack has received your interest, we will send you an automated email to let you know your information was received and then two reminder emails with all the pertinent information. We will also send you a list of warrior names who are currently in treatment, so you can personalize any items you wish.


    Looking for inspiration? Here’s some items that are consistent hits with our warriors.

  • Notes/cards
  • Pillowcases
  • Socks (must have grips on the bottom)
  • Festive window clings
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Anything small that can hang from an IV pole
