Help Sort and Pack Holiday Care Packages
Care and Comfort (OCC) provides support and comfort to "adopted" units of deployed U.S. military service members, serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other conflict regions. Working within the community and through donations received from all over the country, the organization assembles and ships care packages to their adopted units every month until they return home. They currently support up to 200 units on a monthly basis. Join them as they sort, pack and box care packages for troops serving overseas. The troops overseas do not have the comforts of home, so mailing care packages filled with snacks, hygiene and leisure items bring them a touch of home.
