The recipent of the 3000th box was Adam Betz, who is from the Ann Arbor area serving with the Michigan Army National Guard, 125th Infantry Batalion in Afghanistan as the executive officer. The energetic packers consisted of over 30 people who packed 49 boxes in 30 minutes. While many of the packaged care items have been donated over the past 9 years, the cost of the shipping postage has exceeded over $50,000.
