We Also Donate to Veteran-Backed Organizations Every Month!
My Hero Crate was founded to help military families share love and care with their loved ones stationed far from home. We wanted to find unique ways to bring joy, simply because we care about other people.
One way we do this every month is to donate a portion of our proceeds to a veteran-backed organization each month. But we’ve found that, as a care package company, we can do even more to help local families. Part of our mission of caring is to do great work in our local community of Cleveland, Ohio, and beyond. We want to help our city and surrounding areas as best as we can with what we have.
Although our founders and team may not personally experience food insecurity, we learned that many people worldwide do, and don’t know where their next meal may come from. In the area that the Greater Cleveland Food Bank serves, 1 in 5 people experience food insecurity. Last year alone, the food bank served 404,000 people in northeast Ohio, providing almost 57 million pounds of food.
We realized we, too, could help provide relief to those who were struggling by supporting our local food bank here in Cleveland and other nonprofits on similar missions. That’s why we choose to donate time, money, and food as often as we can.
2021 Donations of Our Armed Forces Care Packages and Military Snack Boxes
So far this year, we’ve donated time, money, and food to our philanthropy beneficiaries. Most notably, we’ve assembled and given away military snack boxes to those in need, including to civilians in our local area.
In total, My Hero Crate. has donated the equivalent of 76 food care packages and gift sets to a variety of organizations, like the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. Across all three of our sister organizations, we’ve donated a total of 337 snack boxes and care packages.
For My Hero Crate, our most-often donated care package was the Military Microwave Care Package, which contains quick, nonperishable entree options for all three meals of the day, which could be easily supplemented with fresh, nutritious produce from the local food bank. This care package also contains delicious snack items, because everyone deserves an indulgence, too!
What Comes Next for Military Care Package Donations?
The year isn’t done yet, and we can’t wait to see the unique opportunities we’ll have to continue our mission of helping those in need, both military members and civilians alike.
Sweet Treats, Healthy Snacks, and Easy Meals Made Life a Little Easier
While My Hero Crate and our sister companies are experts in creating delicious care packages, yummy snack boxes, and fun gift boxes for military service members and everyone else you know, we also make sure we’re doing our part to help improve the lives of the people in our community and around our country.
During the pandemic, we fulfilled several requests for care package donations so that we could serve in the best way we know: bringing joy through special snack boxes. Here’s the impact we made this past year with care packages assembled and sent with love.
Snack Boxes to Fill Pantries
Our sister company, The Care Crate Co., was asked on three occasions during the pandemic to donate food care packages to families facing COVID-related financial difficulties.
Our food packages, like the one filled with microwaveable meals, helped them stay nourished while staying at home during the early days of the pandemic.
Giving Away Personal Care Kits
During stay-at-home orders, we used social media to give away care packages with personal care items. Our easy-to-enter giveaway contests gave recipients another reason to smile.
We donated a total of 36 care packages, which included delicious snacks, first aid kits, cleansing wipes, and protective face masks.
Sweet Care Packages for Kid VIPs
If you were admitted to the hospital or moved into other protective housing during the pandemic, you weren’t able to have as many visitors, which means you’d need things to brighten your day. This was especially true for kids!
We donated eight cases of candy care packages to young cancer patients and residents of a children’s home. While we know our care packages aren’t necessarily life-changing, we are thrilled we brought happiness to our recipients.

As You Sent Military Care Packages to Your Heroes, We Donated to Covid Relief
We might be a military care package gift company, but above all, we’re a company that cares about people and what’s happening around the world. So, when we heard about the second wave of COVID-19 in India, we were ready to stand up and help.
Not only do we help you make your loved ones in the armed forces smile with our deployment care packagesandmilitary gift ideas, we also want to step in and do what we can for those in need around the world.
Our Military Gift Company’s Fundraiser Overview
To raise awareness of India’s coronavirus crisis, we shared information on our My Hero Crate social media posts. We asked our social media followers to like and share our post, and in exchange, we agreed to donate $1 per interaction. We did the same on social media for our sister companies: My College CrateandThe Care Crate Co.
When our fundraiser drive ended, we were pleased with the results!
Overall, My Hero Crate social media followers helped us donate $19 toward India’s COVID-19 relief through www.Covid.GiveIndia.org. Across all our care package brands, we were able to donate $122 just from our social media shares alone.
If you are one of our valued social media followers who interacted with our post, we want to say thank you! Because of you, we donated some of our resources to this very important cause.
And remember that you can make your military hero smile with an Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, or Army care package from My Hero Crate.
