WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama is pitching in to help create thousands of care packages for U.S. troops.

In keeping with President-elect Barack Obama's call for a national day of community service on Monday, the eve of his inauguration, Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President-elect Joe Biden, traveled to RFK Stadium in Washington to help assemble the care packages.

Obama daughters Malia and Sasha also helped out.

Organizers hope to create some 70,000 care packages with assistance from 15,000 volunteers.
