Welcome to the Caring for Troops website


The Bend Community Center, where Caring for Troops pack-ups have previously been held, is permanently closing its doors.  As a result, Caring for Troops is moving its monthly pack-up to Bend’s Veterans of Foreign War (VFW) Post.  The Bend VFW is located at 1503 N.E. 4th Street … the VFW building is on the corner of 4th and Olney behind the 3rd Street Cash & Carry store.  The first pack-up at the new location will be on 10 February 2018.


Caring For Troops is Central Oregon's support organization for locally connected men and women serving overseas in the United States military.  We are a ยง501-c3 non-profit organization, our Federal Tax ID number is 27-0111073.

MISSION STATEMENT: Our purpose is to support every military member who is deployed outside of the United States and who lives in or has ties to Central Oregon. We will do this, primarily, by providing care packages. We are pro-troop, war-neutral and nonpartisan. We support our troops in times of peace and in times of war. 

WHO WE SERVE: Military members who have a connection to Central Oregon including sons, daughters, spouses, parents, grandchildren, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, girlfriends, boyfriends, local friends etc. We support all branches of the service, active, reserve, and guard components.

If you are a deployed member of the United States military or know a deployed soldier, sailor, airman, marine, or coast guardsman with ties to Central Oregon, please contact us.
