BRAINTREE, MA and BREWSTER, MA…
Over its 23 years as a small load shipping specialist, Boston Pack and Ship knows what it’s like to ship hundreds, even thousands of boxes at a time. That’s why the Braintree-based shippers holds Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops in the highest regard for achieving its goal of sending out more than 1500 holiday packages to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Cape Cod Cares For Our Troops is a non-profit organization started by then 12-year-old (now 18) Dylan DeSilva of Brewster, Mass. Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops, which sends care packages to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan on a weekly basis, set a goal of 1500 care packages to be sent for the holidays. Boston Pack and Ship donated 300 boxes and other shipping supplies and then coordinated another 1300 boxes to be sold at a discounted rate from their vendor, Colin Box of Easton, Massachusetts towards this effort.
“Boston Pack and Ship offers our heartfelt congratulations to Dylan and Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops for not only meeting its goal of 1500, but for raising the bar and sending out 1700 and still counting,” said Joe Fell, co-owner of Boston Pack and Ship. “At Boston Pack and Ship, we specialize in sending out delicate, high monetary value items. Yet none probably mean as much as these care packages and we’re proud to have been a part of this effort.”
Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops’ regularly sends care packages to U.S. Troops overseas and accepts donations year round. Those interested contributing to the care packages can find a list of items and drop-off locations on www.capecod4thetroops.com. Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops also accepts monetary contributions to help with the cost of supplies and postage. Checks can be sent to: Cape Cod Cares for the Troops, 1831 Long Pond Rd. Brewster, MA 02631.
“We’d like to thank Boston Pack and Ship and all our other sponsors and contributors for their generosity,” said DeSilva. “Fifteen hundred care packages was a mighty ambitious goal, but with the help of all our volunteers and contributors, we were able to make it. Now, it looks like the final total might be just under 2000! Thanks to all.”
