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 14 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.
