There many men and women who have bravely served our country (and some serving today). We’d like to think the finest of these warriors were bred here in the Delaware Valley and raised Phillies fans. But no matter who you are or where you’re from, the commitment by armed forces personnel to keep the rest of us safe is something to be commended. We here at Phillies Nation want to thank all veterans as well as those currently serving and wish everyone a joyous Veterans Day.
For the past several years, we’ve been sending carepackages to Phillies fans in the armed forces and they’ve been delivered to Afghanistan, Iraq, Germany, even the North Pole. Each carepackage costs $40 to send and includes a DVD, a hat, stickers, a keychain and Phanatic figurines and notes from fans who have donated to pay for the packages. If you would like to sponsor a single package, several, or even just contribute a few dollars towards one, please consider making a donation today. 100% of your money will go towards sending the carepackages.
Here’s what some recipients wrote back:
Your care package was great, and knowing we have your support makes it worth the fight. thanks again.
Got the shirts and stickers! Thanks a lot. I’m going around the FOB and tagging CHU’s with the stickers you sent to pimp out the phils!
Here are some photos of the carepackages in action as well as a few Phillies fans in service.
