At 11 a.m. on 11-11-11, the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club hosted a packing party where members and volunteers assembled all the “goodies” collected in Operation Military Care Packages. The boxes were then mailed to troops overseas in time for Thanksgiving. In providing simple care packages full of daily necessities and treats, the “little things” we take for granted, the club saw a way to create a connection with the troops while demonstrating support for them.
