Receiving a care package can mean so much to someone especially the troops that serve our country.
America Supporting Americans first started in 2015 and was a small group that wanted to help give back. Now the organization has turned into a nonprofit that sends about 40 care packages a month to troops overseas. Inside the care packages are encouraging notes from students in Southern California elementary schools.
"In these packages are toiletries, books, clothing and things they would like and need, but the most important part is we send several notes in each care package telling the servicemen how appreciated they are, and that they're certainly not forgotten," said Evie Greene with ASA.
