360 Australia are calling for donations of ‘Aussie comforts’ to send service personnel this ANZAC Day.
Care packages can be sent free of charge to our deployed troops, so long as they strictly comply with Australia Post guidelines. All Australia Post outlets will accept the packages, however, they must be posted by April 13.
In order to qualify for free postage, care packages must weigh no more than 2kg and should be packaged within a “BX2” sized box, available from Australia Post.
Packages can be sent to either male or female personnel who can be a soldier, sailor, airman or airwoman, just specify which in the first line of the mailing address. For example, if you wish to send a specific package to a female, change the first line to ‘An Australian Soldier/Sailor/Airman/Airwoman – Female’
For generic delivery use the following:
An Australian Defence Member
ANZAC Day Mail
Australian Defence Force
SYDNEY NSW 2890
The recipients are very deserving of our support and are most appreciative of the packages.
Please consider sending a Matilda Poppy for them to wear this ANZAC Day. All profits assist Veterans 360 Australia and APPVA.
Go to the Veterans 360 Australia Facebook page for suggested items which include Tim Tams, toiletries, DVDs, socks, magazines and letters of support.
