An Interview with CarePacks Co-Founder, Rick Donohue
CarePacks Helping Thousands of Deployed Service Members
Providing Deployed Troops With Care from Back Home
CarePacks, Inc. is dedicated to sending care packages to the U.S. deployed troops to improve their morale, mental health, and quality of life–and “remind them they are remembered by the people back home.” The care packs contain necessities, comfort items and a letter from a child to provide service members a “personal connection to someone back in the United States.”

The CarePacks Annual Golf Tournament to be held on August 1, 2022, provides much-needed monetary funding to help CarePacks continue its impressive growth and mission.
This organization relies completely on volunteers and charitable donations so they need your help to continue.
Additionally, covering hefty shipping costs abroad uses the bulk of CarePacks’ funds. CarePacks recently informed donors that the cost of shipping has increased tremendously, putting more strain on the organization.
Donohue welcomes receiving the names and addresses of active duty service members to send packages to.
We strive to always honor and help our service members, and the Fourth of July is a pertinent reminder to help support them through CarePacks. Item donations are always welcome (visit CarePacks’ site to learn more). Volunteering for packaging is temporarily closed due to Covid, but Donohue said it will likely reopen soon.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to get involved. You are highly encouraged to let us know of anyone eligible to receive a care package.
