The Beyond the Welcome Home Summit - held in Los Angeles earlier this week - brought together a select group of talented and entrepreneurial participants from campuses and communities across the country. Sponsored by Mobilize.org, ServiceNation: Mission Serve, MTV, the McCormick Foundation, and the Goldhirsh Foundation, the Summit included a service component - a USO Care Package stuffing party!
Summit participants and celebrities alike pitched in to create 7500 Care Packages to be distributed to Troops when they leave for deployment. David Arquette, Antwone Fisher, Olivia Munn, Geoff Stults, and Mathew St. Patrick all create video messages for the Troops. Arquette’s is below and you can see the rest by clicking on their names. Keep scrolling for pictures, too!
