Chester's Harley-Davidson's® is sponsoring a servicemember from each branch of the military to receive one of their special care packages, as well as collecting additional donations for our deployed troops.
Look for the specially marked boxes at Chester's Harley-Davidson® to enter your deployed servicemember or enter their address on the Packages From Home website to receive one of Packages From Home's normal food and hygiene care packages and be entered to win the special care package. Chester's Harley-Davidson® will be kicking off their “Nominate-A-Servicemember” Donation Drive at their Party on a Patio on October 11, and drawing the lucky servicemembers at their Party on the Patio on November 15.
The Trophies have arrived and the Ryder Cup Trophy has nothing on this one. We hope you are planning to join us on November 1 for your chance to win one of these patriotic Kingpin beauties.
In the past three years, through the support of our generous Golfers, Hole Sponsors, Prize Donors and Supporters, the Kingpin Invitational has raised over $12,000 in cash and in-kind donations for this great charity. Building on this momentum, plans are already under way for a bigger and better version this year. Therefore, PFH would like to invite you to attend the 16th edition of the Kingpin Invitational to be held on November 1, 2014 at Stonecreek Golf Club in Phoenix, Arizona.
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!
