First Shipment to Lutheran Church of Philippines
Suzanne Leffers on 03/10/2014
Norfolk volunteers were busy loading a shipment heading to the Philippines. This is the first of the shipments to the Lutheran Church of the Philippines with funding provided by Lutheran Church Missouri Synod for One Million Meals Project. This is to help the people suffering from the devastating effects of Typhoon Yolanda last November. The 259,200 meals that were loaded were packaged at events held at Sioux City, IA, Hastings, Lincoln, Norfolk, Omaha, Wauneta, Imperial, and Odell Nebraska. The container was purchased and will stay at the Christ Lutheran Church at Maehama on the island of Leyte for storage and distribution. In addition, food, hygiene kits, bowls, blankets and quilts were sent.
