ClearedJobs.Net Kicks Off Yearly Care Package Delivery for Military Personnel Abroad

March 16, 2009 Falls Church, Virginia — ClearedJobs.Net once again kicks off  yearly goodwill outreach effort for U.S. military men and women stationed overseas. For the last three years, the security cleared job board has led a care package delivery service for U.S. troops abroad. This year’s care package effort will deliver everything – from Rolling Stone magazines (the Barack Obama special edition ones) and hygiene items to trail mix and beef jerky – to service men and women stationed in Iraq, Germany, Bosnia and Afghanistan.

“Our staff receives care package requests from our good men and women out in the field regularly,” says Kathleen Smith, Chief Marketing Officer for ClearedJobs.Net. “The requests come in from our Facebook page and Twitter feeds. We carefully collect all requests year round and send out personalized care packages four times a year.”

The first care packages ever sent by ClearedJobs.Net were to a young colonel who was a ClearedJobs.Net email list subscriber. “This colonel thanked us for helping him and his comrades,” says Smith. “He was on his third tour and we kept in touch. We didn’t hear from him for some time and began to think the worst. We later learned he had been injured and had been recovering at home. Eventually he was deployed again. We sent him a XXXL ClearedJobs.Net T-shirt to wear over his cast. Today, he is based in Germany and we send him a personalized package every quarter.”

The last care package delivery was sent late last year; more than 40 Christmas stockings were sent to women marines serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. This year’s first care package send off is being made in honor of Lance Corporal Jasmin Gagnon USMC, a ClearedJobs.Net staff member who is being deployed to Afghanistan.
