A Package from Home

Providing Creature Comforts to IDF Soldiers

Candy and chips, warm long underwear and clean white tee-shirts-these are a few of the items that have reached more than 200,000 Israeli soldiers on the front lines in the past 13 years, thanks to A Package from Home (APFH) and its dedicated founder, Barbara Silverman.

Barbara’s efforts began in her living room as a response to terrorist attacks in 2000 and have continued ever since.  Most of the recipients are lone soldiers with no family in the country.

All funds donated to APFH were donor-designated.
