Community Service Day – Packing Boxes for Poor in Nicaragua
*** Sat., Nov. 12th… 9 AM– 4 PM
Sorting & Packing boxes…
Every Saturday from Oct. 8 to Nov. 12
10 AM – 1 PM
Where: 394 Main St., Bridgeport
Sponsor: Maureen Shanley
All CT Quest funded humanitarian aid programs are provided freely to needy Nicaraguans
regardless of religion, creed, race or tribal origin. While there are five programs
that support Nicaraguan families’ independence, CTRPCV has been asked
to help with the Humanitarian Cargo Aid program. This vital program helps Nicaraguan
families overcome generational poverty and it is the backbone of CT Quest’s
work in Nicaragua since the donated cargo shipments do triple service. Cargo
shipments provide quality goods to the poor, create funding for community programs
and build relationships between you and the people of Nicaragua.
CTRPCV will meet at Bill’s warehouse and work from 9 AM until 4 PM 11/12/16. If
you are available to help pack boxes any Saturday before 11/12/16, we are at the
warehouse from 10 AM- 1 PM. Bill will have all the packing supplies, but you might
want to bring your favorite tape dispenser (gun) like I do.
I have been working with CT Quest for Peace for years and I have traveled down
to Nicaragua to see the various projects and to work with Donna Tabor (RPCV/
Nica.) in Granada, Nicaragua. I have seen firsthand that these projects are working
and that every effort we make here is greatly appreciated by the recipients. On
a personal level, I would be pleased if you could come and assist us in our efforts
to send humanitarian aid to the needy in Nicaragua. Please contact me at 203-775
-9222 or maureenshanley@hotmail.com to let me know if you are able to help
with this project.

If you want to bring donations, contact Maureen Shanley at
(maureenshanley@hotmail.com) to see what they need. CT Quest is always looking
for SUMMER clothing, school supplies for children, books in Spanish, wheel
chairs, kitchen utensils, and bed linens. We also send books in English to Nicaraguan
PCVs who are teaching English as a second language. We send DVDs,
CDs and VCR tapes as long as we have a VCR player to send with the tapes.
