Anyone know of any organizations that are collecting games to send to troops overseas? I am clearing some space from my shelves of new/almost new games that I don't have time to get to, and would like to donate them if possible.

Thanks

Argh, my stupid satellite internet ate my response. I don't know of any organization that is specifically collecting games, but depending on the size they can easily be included in any care package. I recently saw a copy of Battleship.

He was very generous and helpful in getting a few copies of Nexus Ops to me in Afghanistan. He had plans to do something more, so maybe this will help him out.

One option is to donate them to the Army's Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) program. I asked the Camp Arifjan MWR manager this morning, and she explained that she is authorized to accept donations to MWR and put them into circulation throughout the theater of operations. You can send them to her at:

Tammy Holmes
Business Operations Manager
Area Support Group - Kuwait
Directorate of Installation Support
APO AE 09366

You can also get some more information at http://giftstoarmy.army.mil/SoldiersFamilies.aspx.

Thank you for your generosity.

[edited to add contact information]

Thanks for the info.

A friend of mine put me in contact with an Army Officer in Tampa, and he is going to get the games to our troops overseas.
