The RSF Garden Club hosted its third annual Packages for Patriots event on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. Representatives from the Garden Club and the community came together to fill 100 care boxes to send to the military during the holiday
Chaired by Ginger Bord, this year was the first year that boxes will be sent to ships stationed at sea. The fully packed boxes will go to three Navy ships with Marine first responders, both men and women. The items for the boxes were collected at various drop-off points in the Rancho Santa Fe Village, everything from toiletries to goodies and snacks. Each box was also packed with a handwritten note.
