St. George Orthodox Military Association just sent out another “Survival Package” to one of our Orthodox Soldier deployed in Afghanistan.

The “Survival Package” is one of SGOMA’s outreach programs. It is a means to provide our deployed Orthodox Service men and women some Orthodox necessities as well as some comfort foods and items.

Every “Survival Package” is packed full into a USPS Priority Mail APO/Military box. The “Survival Package” includes some of the following items:

  • Orthodox New Testament & Psalms Book
  • Two (2) Orthodox icons
  • Orthodox music CD
  • Chotki (Prayer Rope) along with a description on how to pray the Jesus Prayer
  • SGOMA Brochure
  • Food items (Cookies, Crackers, Pop-tarts, beef-jerky, sunflower seeds, rice krispies treats, peanut bars, fruit bars, and liquorish)
  • Personal items (handi-wipes, batteries, dental floss, q-tips, hand sanitizer, and mouthwash)

The boxes are filled and any extra room in the box is topped off with additional food items, so that all the available space is used with items for our Troops.

Do you want to donate  a “Survival Package” to one of our Orthodox Troops, or send a “Survival Package” to a specific person? If so then mail your request to SGOMA and let them know. If sending it to a specific person SGOMA will need the:
