Deliveries of care packages from individuals in time for Christmas has now closed (last week), however you can still show your support – the most effective way for you to show your support is to send an e-mail message to the troops. These messages of support are circulated widely to Australian personnel.
The RSL Australian Forces Overseas Fund prepares care packages that are dispatched twice yearly to Defence personnel deployed on operations. These care packs contain various non-perishable items, a letter of appreciation on behalf of all Australians and RSL Membership contact details. Importantly, these packs are professionally prepared and meet all Defence and host nation transport and import requirements. Donations to the RSL Australian Forces Overseas Fund can be made online. Donations over $2 are tax deductible and every donation is individually acknowledged by the RSL.
