  • Feeding and clothing the needy is our largest budget item. More money is spent each year in preparing food and clothing to ship or to deliver first hand.
  • Food or funds for food are usually sent by mail or by the container. At times, volunteers either take the funds and/or buy the food for distribution. Food or funds for food are provided on a regular basis for distribution or by volunteers at locations chosen prior to their mission trips.
  • On a weekly basis, clothing/shoes are collected, packed and mailed to the Balkan countries. Periodically, volunteers will take clothing with them and personally distribute them in different Balkan communities. In 2006, over 25 volunteers personally shared in the distribution.
