Packages From Home wants to give a huge thank you to Fry's Food Stores, CBS 5 and the community of Arizona for supporting our troops this past February during the annual Courageous Hearts fundraising effort.
Packages From Home was selected as one of four organizations to benefit from Fry's Food Stores’ campaign, that was televised and promoted by CBS 5, to help give back to the individuals who have sacrificed so much for this country: our United States military personnel, veterans and their families.
During the month of February, all 119 Fry's Food stores gave customers the opportunity to donate their spare change at cash registers and purchase a Courageous Heart to dedicate to a past or present service member. Fry's Food Stores and their amazing customers were able to raise more than $185,000 to be split between four nonprofit organizations, including Packages From Home. CBS 5 was also a huge contributor to the fundraising efforts, televising multiple Courageous Hearts events and hosting a live phone bank that raised more than $11,000 during a single evening newscast.
It warms our hearts to see that Fry’s Food Stores, CBS 5 and the communities of Arizona have such a strong commitment to our military, veterans and their families. Packages From Home and all of our deployed troops want to give you a big thank you for your support and for helping us continue our mission of sending care packages to our deployed troops and boosting the morale of all veterans.
