January 3, 2009 Packing Day for The Care Package Project™
Our January 3rd, 2009 Packing Day has come and gone already! We had 99 volunteers show up and together we managed to package and ship a whopping 1,150 care packages to our men and women serving overseas! Thank you to all of the volunteers for making this one of our best packing days yet.
Thank You From Marines:
Email received January 12, 2009:
I just recieved your package today. Thank you very much. I put a couple of pictures me and my friends on here. My name is CPL ... and I am deployed to Iraq. I would like you to send a package to one of my Marines. He does not get a lot of mail here. His name and address is at the bottom. Could put a message on there for me? "This one is from the family brother." It's short notice but He could use a care package. He loves Twizzlers. Thank you.
