CARE packages

What’s a care package? It's a package you send to show you care about someone. We send them to soldiers abroad and to our kids at college.

But when it is a CARE (all caps) package, you're going back to the origin of the term.

CARE packages were sent by the Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe to Americans in Europe as it was still recovering from WWII.

That organization changed its name to Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere. Their focus is not on packages but on bigger development efforts.

The term “care package” has survived in its broader sense.
