Some of you know that I have been working with Missions in Romania for the past 12 years. The one that I am closest to is the CHAD Childrens Home We are currently collecting Items to send in a 40' container. To give you an idea of the volume of this (2560 cubic feet.) Imagine the box that a 17"computer monitor would come in, it will take 1000 of these. Right now I have about 20% of what will be needed.
You can call me or have me call you if you have any questions. Email me personally and I wll call you or give you info on calling me.
I am inserting a previous letter here to explain what you can do to help.

Dear Friends,
In the past I have done several coat collections and have been able to send over 400 of them along with many other winter clothes and shoes. These go to the orphans and the poorest of the poor in Romania.
I have never sent a container of goods but have sent my boxes to others putting a container together .
It has been my hearts desire to send a 40' container . We have some donated warehouse space to store collected things and are now asking for you to send or bring donated items.
(instructions and a list of items will be at the end of this message) We could also use some more warehouse space if anyone has some space in their basement , garage or shed that they can donate for our use. Even a small amount can be very helpful. I am hoping to get a container to the ORPHANEGE by this winter. I think it is a reachable goal. When we approach the amount of things needed to fill a container we will do a fund raiser to get the $5000 needed to ship it. Now is the time to start collecting and storing.
Here are some ideas.
1 box up items you no longer need, tell you friends and neighbors too.
2 do a coat drive at your local church (you will be amazed at what you get)
3 adopt a resale shop in your neighborhood. (they have much they cannot use that is very usable to us
and they are very willing to donate it) just stop in on a certain day each week and pick up what they have for you.
4 make arrangements at a local school to pick up unclaimed things when the school year is over. Or with local businesses where people may leave coats and hats and don't return to claim them.
5 go to garage sales and tell the host that you will come at the end of the day and pick up what they don't sell. (when you tell them what you are doing with it, many people will give you what you want on the spot.)

If you have any other ideas please share them with me. This is an extremely rewarding ministry
that will cost you very little money or time to do. JUST TRY IT AND GOD WILL BLESS YOU
