Packages on their way...

The first two shipments of care packages "From Our Hearts" have been shipped out and contained 150 personal "Care Packages" for our troops in each shipment. It will take approximately 10 days for each shipment to get there and each package will show the military personnel that there is somebody back home looking out for them and thinking of them while they serve our country...
