Actor and voice-over artist Alex Polinsky (Charles in Charge, Adventures in Odyssey, Teen Titans Go!) provided an update on his Joy Ready to Experience (JRE) Christmas care package mission for military personnel as he continues to receive goods that will be sent overseas.
While many people are donating to the Go Fund Me, multiple companies and organizations are donating items that will be packaged and shipped to military members who are unable to spend the holidays with their loved ones.
Krave Jerky gave Polinsky a deal on various food items, multiplying the amount ordered and See’s Candies doubled Polinsky’s order after finding out about the JRE mission via Twitter.
Polinsky released the following statement regarding See’s Candies generous contribution.
“Last week we found out that sees candy will be supporting the mission and doubling our purchase! I didn’t expect that at all and it’s very generous from a classy company. This means I get my wish and we are sending enough candy for the service members to share in country with their friends and children they may meet. Increase the candy increase the joy I always say.”
Some of Polinsky’s followers aren’t just donating to the Go Fund Me, but have sent products that will be added to the care packages. Another follower has been contacting organizations and was able to arrange for a large donation from 4imprint that contributed multiple items.
Alex Polinsky was last seen in Teen Titans Go! To The Movies and recently landed a spot on DC Superhero Girls.

This isn’t the first time that Alex Polinsky has helped spread holiday cheer to others. As a Nickelodeon voice-over artist, he participated in the Nickelodeon Feast of Sharing this Thanksgiving that provided dinner to multiple families in need. Nickelodeon’s Feast of Sharing is a joint outreach with the Salvation Army.
Polinsky also shared a photo with actors Alina and Dave Foley who are also part of the Nick family from the Feast of Sharing.

Due to the number of earbuds that 4Imprint donated, Polinsky is currently searching for MP3 players to send to military members.
Those who want to find out more about Polinsky’s JRE mission or get involved can find information on his official Twitter account. Known for his interaction with fans, it isn’t surprising that Polinsky was able to recruit as much assistance as he has.
Polinsky has performed other charity work with Teen Titans’s stars Greg Cipes and Tara Strong.
Polinsky is currently completing more episodes at Nickelodeon and can be seen in Blaze and the Monster Machines, Lost in Oz, Breadwinners, Ben 10 Omniverse, and Teen Titans Go!. Keep an eye out for Alexander Polinsky in DC Superhero Girls.
