So far this year Iowa Care Package has shipped 341 Iowa Care Packages to deployed soldiers in combat zones, primarily in Afghanistan.
"At this point this year, we have merchandise and care packages to ship, but the checkbook is empty. We need contributions to pay for postage of the care packages that are now ready to go," said Ron Fisher, Iowa Care Package founder.
The need for Iowa Care Packages continues. Despite news reports that would lead you to a different conclusion, the country continues to deploy fresh military personnel to Afghanistan.
