In this “heroic” Team Building activity your team will assemble care packages for our service men and women. Packages are created for soldiers who rarely or never receive anything from home. Teams really make a difference by acknowledging their service and providing these special gifts.

Large indoor space with a table for every team, and a seat for every participant. We also require rectangular banquet tables for supplies. Some outside spaces may be compatible also. 20 sq ft per participant is a good guide.

The care package supplies have been carefully chosen based on the items most requested by service men and women in the field. Your gift will be sent directly to organizations which identify individuals who benefit the most from this wonderful donation. TeamBonding works with military branches to ensure that packages make it to the military personnel that needs it most.
Let’s start with where it ends – care packages for military personnel.
As U.S. troops continue to deploy and defend our nation overseas, many companies want to know how to send care packages to service members — even if they don’t personally know them. Our country loves supporting our troops both at home and overseas. And, care packages sent to overseas bases or stateside hospitals are a great way to show that gratitude.
In the Operation Military Care corporate volunteering program, your teams are required to gather items and materials that will complete the care packages. These items are spread over a large area. From competition to collaboration, teams realize that only a shared, concerted effort will allow the project task to be completed on time. At the end of the activities, teams use their points to purchase items for the care packages for their soldiers. If timing and circumstances allow, we coordinate with a local soldier or charities such as Operation Homefront and Blue Star Mothers who accept the gifts on care packages for military personnel abroad. After the packages are created, teams tally their points and the real “winning” team is declared — our troops overseas!
You’ll be amazed at how energizing and uplifting this program can be for everyone involved, and what your team can accomplish back at work after an event that pulls everyone together for such a rewarding cause. If timing and circumstances allow, we coordinate with a local soldier or charities such as Operation Homefront and Blue Star Mothers who accept the gifts on behalf of our soldiers abroad.
Real soldiers, real results: “I am currently deployed to Afghanistan. I received an amazing package (you guys were spot on with items I love… Ramen noodles, popcorn, romantic comedies..don’t judge). I wanted to thank you so much and it meant a lot to get a package when I least expected it.”
Rave Reviews From Clients
On behalf of the soldiers, I would like to thank you for your support. To have people we don’t know express appreciation by taking the time to send us a package and a note means a lot to us
Thank you for the outstanding team building experience that you provided for our associates at our Leadership Conference. Operation Military Care has made a profound impact on all of our attendees. The entire exercise, particularly meeting the soldiers at the end, has left them with lasting memories that they will cherish for many, many years to come. Paul and the team kept our 400 participants energized and excited throughout the event. It was, without a doubt, a truly unique and wonderful experience. Thanks again for helping us to make Leadership Conference a great success!
I wanted to thank you again for thinking of us not once but twice for the care packages. I know these boxes will brighten the soldiers holidays! Your coworkers are great, by the way. You work with a great team. Thanks again for everything!
This was a great team-building experience for our group. It ended up being the perfect team event. Everyone had a lot of fun and had the added bonus of knowing they were doing something nice for the military. This was also a last minute event and Team Bonding was able to pull it together quickly. I highly recommend Team Bonding.
With less than a month before our meeting we utilized TeamBonding to work with for our team building event. Upon making contact with TeamBonding we were assigned Julie for our Account Manager. We identified Operation Military Care as our event. Julie was quick to set the logistics in motion. We were assigned an Event Manager, Verena who efficiently facilitated the event at the local level to ensure a seamless set up for the event. Jenna our facilitator was engaging and built excitement around the event. Our team had a great time and were thrilled to be supporting our deployed military with care packages. The event was highly rated by all in our post meeting survey. We would recommend TeamBonding and happily work with them for team building activities in the future.
This was our first time using TeamBonding. Our group had an excellent time. Everything was well planned, thought out and organized. Everyone had such a great time that we have already recommended TeamBonding to other departments.
"Teambonding did an excellent job and was able to get people that never participate in office things engaged and involved. We got to know things about our co-workers that probably would have never come out in normal conversation which helps to enrich our work environment. And then to be able to give back to the community made the event more than a value add."
"The event went amazing! My team loved it and Ben was such a hit! My manager came up for the party and wants to do this at our office in Fremont for next year as well. We would love to do this again in Tualatin next year and try another activity!"
