This website is dedicated to the memory CPL Brian M Kennedy, USMC.  

Welcome to the Pack It Up website.  Pack It Up was formed in 2004 as a charitable non profit organization, and is registered in Massachusetts with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General's Office. It is also classified as a 501(c)(3) charity under the Internal Revenue Service.

At Pack It Up, our mission is to make sure our troops who are stationed overseas know without a doubt that those of us back home are thinking of them, hoping and praying for their safe return.  We send over care packages to our contacts who distribute what we send to all the troops.  During the month, we raise as much money as we can and then we ship overseas whatever items the troops have requested during that month.

All members of Pack It Up serve on a voluntary basis, receiving no salary, benefits or expenses.
