Dear GOD’S CHILD Project Friends and Contributors,
On Saturday, June 8, a handful of staff and dedicated volunteers will help begin the process of sending generously donated goods down to Guatemala. It will take a team of volunteers two days to get our storage shed and storage room emptied into the shipping container. We are very excited to announce that, for the first time, Walmart in Bismarck is also letting us set-up in their parking lot to collect donations for the project on Saturday, June 8. This will be great for gathering donations and also raising awareness about the children we help at The GOD’S CHILD Project. All items will then be sent down to The Dreamer Center in Antigua.
Throughout the year, the program has clothing distributions where the people of Guatemala will stand in line for hours for the goods from the shipping container. These donations include clothes, shoes, even school supplies. The many school supplies donated will make it possible for these excited young children to start the school year with new backpacks, fresh notebooks, pencils, and dreams of what their education will bring! We also have many donated medical supplies that will save children being helped at Casa Jackson Malnutrition Center and the Atkinson Family Clinic.
Although you may not be in the area to donate goods or time, you can always make monetary donations. It costs A LOT to send the container down to Guatemala. We are asking for your support by donating to help defray the costs of shipping this container to the families that so desperately need our help. Any amount would be greatly appreciated: $20, $50, $100, $500, $1,000. Please give what you can. You can donate online right now at http://gcpstore.com/product/3553EBC/sponsorapound.php
If you have any questions about how we can work together to change lives with The GOD’S CHILD Project please give us a call at 701-255-7956.
