CARE Packages to deployed Service Members approximately four times a year. We accept product and monetary donations all year long. One of the most frequently asked questions is...
"What is a CARE Package?"
A CARE package is a 'taste of home' sent with lots of love. All CARE packages contain cards or letters, a note of appreciation and support, and the box is filled with many of the items listed below.
