January 27th- All of the care packages have been delivered to Israel. Jerusalem Care packages are already available for pick up at the Michael Levin Base at 10 HaDekel Street. Once the lockdown ends, packages will be distributed to kibbutzim by Garin Tzabar and be available for pick up at the Lone Soldier Center in Tel Aviv. Stay tuned for updates!
December 18th- We've ordered all of the packaging needed to start assembling the packages! Due to Covid delays, the a 1 day turn around is now a 4-5 day turn around, and we expect the boxes to arrive by Wednesday, December 23rd.
UPDATE: Boxes didn't arrive until December 30th.
GETTING THE GOODS
December 13th- Upon the successful funding of our campaign, we began shopping! We've made tons of trips to Target, Costco Business Center, Trader Joe's, Ulta, REI, and placed online orders for all of the products coming from out of the state. Due to Covid, there are lots of delays in deliveries, but we're taking it in stride!
December 17th- We extended our Chanukah fundraising campaign by a week, and doing so enabled us to raise 100% of the funds needed to send a care package to every lone soldier who requested one by December 17th, 2020!
