How does it work?


1.  You send me one, two, or all of the following:

2.  I put four gloves and four balls into a box and ship it (approximate cost of $20) to troops around the world.

Sending our troops our national pastime.

3.  Our troops receive the letters, gloves and baseballs.

  1. If you’re donating a glove, print out this sheet and put it in the glove before sending it to me.


Gloves 4 Troops is a volunteer organization and is not classified as a non-profit organization.  For this reason, any contributions you make will not be eligible for a tax deduction.  So even though from a tax standpoint it won't help your pocketbook, it will be good for the soul. It is recognized that not everyone has a baseball glove to donate but they may want to support the cause with a cash donation.  Any cash donations will be recorded in a ledger, and deposited to a checking account established at a local bank in the name of Gloves 4 Troops (under its own tax I.D. number).  If money is contributed via Paypal, at the end of each month money will be distributed from the Paypal account to the checking account. The money in the account will be used only for buying gloves, buying balls and for shipping expenses. If you have any questions please email them to and I will do my best to respond quickly.  

*A number of thank you cards and letters have been sent from the military specifically thanking individuals for their donations.  It would be impossible to contact each person to let them know their donation was received with such gratitude.  Please know it is greatly appreciated by all!


Gloves Sent to Soldiers

* Always accepting glove requests to military family and friends.
