Anyone who’s ever been away from home for long periods of time can relate to the excitement and joy of receiving a care package. Even more significant than the contents of the package is the connection to volunteers back home who committed their time and energy to put the packages together. USO Big Apple Packs contain entertainment and New York themed items including food, sports paraphernalia, and sundry related items, plus phone cards and notes of encouragement from grateful Americans. They’re shipped overseas to USO centers in combat zones and military serving around the world.
