Two containers of donations from Canada delivered to the warehouse today!

1 Sept 2010 Containers-6

We started out the day with a clean warehouse.  There was very few donations in the warehouse because they had all been given away!  People were lined up ready to hand the donations from person to person.  We had two lines.  One line was for diapers, baby moist wipes, medical, and tents.  The other line was for clothing, shoes, blankets, towels, and sheets.  The first truck arrived around 11 AM and the next three came about an hour apart.  This worked well for us because we could get the one truck unloaded, the september 1 container22donations stacked in their pre-assigned location, make all of the stacks nice and neat, before the next truck arrived!

We had enough time to have fun!  Someone donated 8 to 10 boxes of T-Shirts and so everyone put on a T-Shirt and we took their photos!  We also received 12 incubators from British Columbia.  We put them all in the barn when we unloaded them, but then they had to be rolled back up the driveway because we wanted to store them in a tent until all of the containers have been unloaded.

1 Sept 2010 Containers-37We are short of volunteers right now.  We had a team who  were supposed to arrive on Wednesday who cancelled because of the threat of the hurricane that turned north and did not hit any of Haiti or Florida.  Another volunteer who was supposed to arrive today, did not come.  We do not have another team coming until the middle of October!  We could use some volunteers between now and October 12, if there are anyone who can come on short notice, please email me at DIXIE or call 719-638-4348 for more september 1 container43information.

We pulled in several of our young teenage boys in the  community that play basketball at our house every day to come and help.  Georges and Jocelyne came from Port-au-Prince to be here,  They are such a big help to GLA several times per week and we feel that they are truly a part of the GLA family!

God provided people to help this time.  We have 3 more containers for GLA and we need people to help unload, sort, and distribute the donations in Haiti.

What a blessing to have been part of many hearts and hands joining together to help the people of Haiti. Thank you for posting these pictures Dixie, we cannot wait to get there to help sort and distribute. May God continue to give you strength as your work there continues and may He bring many strong hands to help carry the load. Blessings on you all.

I was wondering why older kids or young men weren't used to help with stuff like this. It gives them a way to feel useful and in return can receive the benefit of supplies for their family. Glad to hear of the generosity of those in Canada who sent supplies.
