Domestic Shipments in December Bless Many

Wisconsin Branch was busy in December 2017 with several deliveries within the US. Four of the deliveries included a total of 89,583 pounds of potatoes delivered to four different Texas towns with recipients that support border missions. They also shipped 15,000 pounds of potatoes and edible beans, clothing, medical equipment and furniture to Hanna from Heaven in Kentucky. Wisconsin Branch along with MN South Branch and MN North Collection Center paid for the cost to purchase the potatoes and edible beans. Another shipment with quilts, clothing, coats, shoes, hygiene supplies, medical equipment, toys, Christmas gift boxes, student chairs/desks and sports equipment was delivered to Iglesia Lutheran Cisto in Del Rio, Texas. That is a lot of food and goods shared across many miles in the US. Thank you to the many volunteers and donors that help make these purchases and deliveries possible
