Update on Phillies Care Packages for Troops

For those of you who haven’t heard, we’re collecting donations so that we can send fun Phillies gear to fans serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. In less than a month, we’ve had 30 people and companies donate over $750.

This past week we plowed through a mountain of customs forms, Post Office boxes, tape and newspapers to stuff 15 carepackages for soldiers. Each package features a custom Phillies Nation Phillies hat, a DVD of the 2008 season, a handful of Phanatic figurines, Phillies Nation stickers and a Phillies keychain, courtesy of our friends at

We identified recipients by asking around on our Facebook page and each person who responded was genuinely excited and grateful; so if you haven’t made a donation yet, you still can by clicking here. This really means a lot to these guys and for those of us who normally take their sacrifices for granted, it is an easy way to give some thing back.

This first batch of packages are being delivered to places as far as Iraq, Afghanistan, Germany, Japan, and even the North Pole.  If you know of a Phillies fan serving abroad or are one yourself, and would like us to send a carepackage, please email us through our contact form.

Here are some photos from this weekend’s packing session:

    If I know a soldier who deserves this how do I get him nominated?
