First packing party far exceeded expectations
It was exciting to see Operation Carepak, well, in operation! Yesterday’s packing party was a great success. The goal was to send out 15 carepaks; they sent 19, but packed an additional 36 carepaks!
(They are saving some to send out next month. Although they will still be having a packing party next month, they wanted to get ahead of the game. Their goal is to maintain their commitment to the soldiers through December.)
It should only take about a week or two for the packages to reach the soldiers, according to Jennifer Mullis, steering committee chair.
The next packing party is scheduled for 3-4:30 Wednesday, June 2 in D-115 (enter through the parking lot). If you’d like a donation box for your classroom or department, please contact Operation Carepak.
