BENEFITING: American Red Cross
Help send care packages to our troops!
On June 6, in recognition of the 70th anniversary of D-Day, we held the first ever "Operation Care Package" - a collaborative effort with local news station KCRA 3 to collect care package items for our military service members overseas.
We set out with a goal of collecting enough supplies to fill 250 packages, which is a LOT of supplies!
But as we've come to know over the years, when there is a need, our communities step up in a HUGE way. At the close of this 15-hour day, you helped to amass five truckloads of supplies...enough to fill MORE THAN 1,000 CARE PACKAGES!
It was truly an incredible effort, as donations poured in from all across the Capital Region.
But the work isn't finished!
Per our initial objective, we have packed and shipped 300 care packages. But there is plenty left to ship and we need your help!
Funds raised through Crowdrise will go directly towards getting these packages to our service members at home and abroad. So please help us send these tokens of appreciation to those who serve and sacrifice so much on our behalf!
Thank you for your support of Operation Care Package!
