Be a Leader, Involve Others

Organizing a collection drive of items or notes is a great way to get your friends, family, or organization involved!  Both are great activities for your school, church groups or CCD classes, youth groups, your local sports teams, girl or boy scouts.

Getting started is easy:

  Choose a list of items you want to collect anywhere from one or two specific items to our entire suggested list.  Click here for list of suggested items
  Organize a date and time to collect the items, or have them dropped off.
  Let your group know when and where you will be collecting items.
  Encourage your group members or donors write letters of support to the troops. Click here for our note writing tips and tricks
  Be sure to send us a message at and let us know you’re organizing a collection! We can offer suggestions or may be able to point your effort in the most effective direction for you.

All notes and donations should be shipped to:

Hugs for Heroes, Inc.
P.O. Box 572
Dover, MA 02030

If you live locally and would like to coordinate a pick up time, please email us at


Past fundraisers have included car washes, candy or bake sales, and even door-to-door canvassing, but there are many more possibilities! Email us at for more ideas.



If you would like to volunteer to coordinate pick up/drop offs for donated items or to serve as a collection point, please email us at for more information.
