In 2012, Kathleen Lewis was awarded with the Hon Kachina Volunteer Award. This year, they have asked Kathleen to come back and speak once again! Kathleen is a true representation of volunteer-ism and passion. Packages From Home is proud to have her as our founder!
The Hon Kachina Volunteer Award is Arizona’s most prestigious celebration of volunteerism, and is a 36 year tradition in Arizona to applaud ordinary individuals doing extraordinary things. Since 1990, proceeds raised at the Hon Kachina Volunteer Awards Dinner have been donated to deserving non-profit volunteer based organizations.

If you've ever been to Packages From Home, there's a good chance you met Peg and Tom. They were there packing for our troops when Packages was working out of car trunks and garages, and 10 years later, they're still coming. Following the attacks of 9/11, Peg always wore red, white, and blue to show her love of country. When they left Packages on August 13th, with Peg proudly announcing that they'd packed 47 boxes that day (their record was 72), we had no way of knowing that would be Peg's last day. She made her final exit on August 21st. If ever there was a person with a fierce pride in her country and in her troops, it was Peg. It won't be the same without you Peg!
