Another Big Steel Box of Love

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

It just wasn’t big enough. We filled it till there was no room to spare but there were still so many needs remaining for the Guatemala children’s village. So we’re going to do it once again and try to cram the stuff that was left behind into another very large metal box and ship it to Guatemala.

Even though not all the items we needed to send were included in the shipment, everything we did send was deeply appreciated and put to use. In some cases within minutes of being unloaded from the container. E.g., the refrigerators were a huge blessing and no time was wasted in getting them installed in the homes.

Even with all the we did send in the last container, there are many needs still to be met at Los Pinos. A few examples are good quality used sofas, a brush hog with PTO, mechanics hand tools for auto, truck and farm repair and even more refrigerators. As always, financial contributions to defray direct costs are appreciated.

So we’ve started the process of shipping a second container to Los Pinos in January, 2001. Which means that once again we need your invaluable contributions so we can meet the needs of our Los Pinos Children’s Village. Please contact Doug Congleton here at ICC HQ to let him know how you can help. Here’s Doug’s Email. Here’s our phone number: 800.422.7729. Thanks for all you do for “His Kids!”
