10,500 pounds of donated items received in Colorado today!
Antioch Bible Church, located in Missouri, coordinated collecting and delivering this large shipment of donations to our Colorado Springs office. The shipment included food, towels, linens, rugs, and lots of other wonderful items.
Most of the linens and things are from hotels and hospitals. When hotels give new contracts for linens, they give away to charity all of the old towels, sheets, and rugs that are in the hotels and put all new ones in their place!
Can you imagine how thankful families living in tents will be when they receive a rug to put in their tent? We give towels and sheets out in every family bag that we put together and never have enough for each bag we make up! We will be able to make more families happy with all of these linens and items!
We will collect more donations until we have a container load full and then send it to Haiti later in the year. We are waiting for 7 containers to clear customs in Haiti and we are working hard to get all items in our Haiti warehouse distributed to people in need. We want to thank again everyone who have sent donations to help the Haitian people!
