Supplies for Soldiers


A little bit of home can go a long way for military service members stationed overseas. That’s why Eastman sponsors the Supplies for Soldiers program, an initiative that sends care packages to our overseas deployed military men and women to boost morale and help provide needed items.

Thanks to our Eastman Foundation team members and our site community partners and neighbors, we have collected and shipped over 294,679 items since 2014. In December, more than 49,891 items was collected and shipped in care packages which made their way around the globe to our U.S. deployed units. Each deployed unit received multiple boxes of toiletries, entertainment items such as books and playing cards, non-perishable food/drink mixes, and practical items, including batteries, note pads and much more. Each unit also received notes and letters from area students sharing their gratitude.

Supporters can make a monetary contribution through the Eastman Foundation PayPal account.
