PeaceWorks 69th Humanitarian Aid Shipment is out to sea!

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.
