GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Operation Interdependence is sending approximately 600 care packages to our active-duty military around the world.
Volunteers gathered Tuesday morning at Martin Mortuary where they began creating unique care packages.
These care packages contain a variety of goods so that those in the military are able to enjoy a slice of home.
Operation Interdependence tells us the estimated 600 care packages is the highest number of boxes packed in just one day.
Those who participated say this act of goodwill provides a sense of comfort knowing they can put a smile on a soldier's face from thousands of miles away.
"We see bad news too much, I think it's time for some good news. People need a reason to smile", says LeAnn Leffler-Foote the Office Manager of Martin Mortuary.
Operation Interdependence received support from Eide Bailey and Blue Star Moms and they're also looking to expand their care package efforts.
