care package

A gift of food or small items sent to a student, camper, or friend. The original CARE (Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe) was founded in 1944 by 22 organizations to work together to help victims of World War II. In a couple of years, CARE packages, usually containing food, were sent to 11 European countries, and in 1948 CARE airlifted food to Berliners behind the Russian blockade. After Europe recovered, CARE continued to assist victims of war, drought, famine, and civil strife in other parts of the world. By then, the name had been extended to packages sent as a gift, and it has become a cliché. An article in Time magazine discussing the mailing of umbilical cord blood, used for many kinds of therapy, had a sidebar: “Care Package. See how mail-in donations work at time. com/cord_blood” (July 26, 2010).
