Care Package Project, through Los Angeles RPCVs

At the end of 2012, RPCVLA started a Care Package Project to send encouragement and small gifts to currently serving volunteers around the world, especially those who might not otherwise get a package. PCVs sent us their requests and mailing address through a simple online form, then we put together packages at our 2012 and 2013 holiday parties, along with a few other events during the year, and our members contributed the postage to mail them. So far, we have sent 125 packages and have received numerous messages, emails, and photos of thanks and joy. If you are interested in getting involved please go to the website below.
