Is it chugging by Miami? Heading through the Panama Canal? We’re not quite sure, but by early July all of our Nicaraguan partners will be unpacking a 45′ shipping container full of material aid donations. It will be the 69th of the PeaceWorks shipments that started nearly a quarter of a century ago.
On May 14th, about 45 of us met up at the United Presbyterian Church in Plainfield to pack and load the container with over a thousand boxes of clothing, school and household supplies, sporting goods, medical equipment, bicycles, etc. It never, ever gets boring, and always a challenge! Can you come help us do it again…for the 70th shipment in October? We can use your muscle, your material donations and support to offset the $10,000 in costs needed to ship hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations to our Nicaraguan partners.
Enjoy a few photos from our shipment day.
