BRAINTREE, MA and BREWSTER, MA…
As a small load shipping specialist for the two decades, Boston Pack and Ship specializes in safely packing and shipping delicate, fragile items, some with considerable monetary value. In donating 200 boxes and packing supplies to Cape Cod Cares For Our Troops, a non profit dedicated to sending care packages to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, you could argue the contents of those shipments hold far more value—particularly during the holiday season.
Cape Cod Cares For Our Troops is a non-profit organization started by 15-year-old Dylan DeSilva of Brewster, Mass. Dylan wanted to find a way to honor U.S. Troops for their service and sacrifice to our country. With the help of his family and friends he sends care packages to our Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan on a weekly basis. Boston Pack and Ship’s contribution will go towards Cape Cod Cares For Our Troops’ effort to send 500 care holiday packages to U.S. Troops.
“When we heard Dylan’s story and what he was trying to accomplish with the holiday care packages, it wasn’t a question of would we help, but how much we could help,” said Joe Fell, co-owner of Boston Pack and Ship. “Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops is a wonderful reminder of what the holidays are supposed to be about: giving. When you consider how far away from home the men and women of our armed forces are, it’s an absolutely wonderful gesture.”
On Saturday November 22nd and Sunday November 23rd at the Trowbridge Tavern, 100 Trowbridge Road in Bourne, Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops will hold a Christmas Care Package Party to assemble all 500+ care packages. Those interested contributing to the care packages can find a list of items and drop-off locations on www.capecod4thetroops.com.
The cost of the entire mailing will run around $11,000. If you’d like to make a monetary contribution, please send a check 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. “Three hundred care packages is a mighty ambitious goal, but with the help of all our volunteers and contributors, I am sure we’ll make it.”
