Anyone who's been away from home for a long time knows how hard it can be and how much joy a care package can bring. DONATE any of the items from the list below or make a financial contribution in cash or check at one of our collection boxes on campus or at the U of I Employee Credit Union Branches.* No donation is too small. Even the littlest things can bring big smiles to America's men and women overseas. Let's remind them that ILLINOIS CARES.
