"Casa de Fruta, a family-owned dried fruit and nut grower, is partnering with two non-profit organizations to send care packages filled with healthy snacks, treats and patriotic items to wounded and deployed American soldiers. This collaboration enables donors, via the Casa de Fruta website (www.casadefruta.com), to select the appropriate donor level and gift basket they would like shipped to U.S. soldiers who are either deployed or wounded and recovering in hospitals abroad.
The two organizations partnering with Casa de Fruta are Operation First Response, which will forward the care packages to wounded soldiers in combat hospitals, and Blue Star Moms, which will send the care packages to deployed soldiers. Operation First Response is dedicated to sending care packages to wounded American soldiers in combat support hospitals in Iraq, Germany and other locations around the world, while Blue Star Moms is a support group for military mothers and families in Northern California and is the Bay Area chapter of the national group, Blue Star Moms of America."
