Sorting 99,000 Pounds of Surplus Supplies for Distribution in Bolivia
In September 2015, Mano a Mano volunteers loaded 99,000 pounds of surplus supplies into four 40-foot containers at our Saint Paul, Minnesota warehouse. The supplies were destined for Bolivia, where we distribute them to Mano a Mano projects, other organizations, and individuals in need.
These supplies recently arrived to Mano a Mano in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and staff & volunteers have started to unload and sort the shipment. (Check out our Facebook page for more pictures.)
The Next Round of 70,000+ Pounds Is Sitting in St. Paul, Minnesota & Ready To Ship…
Mano a Mano currently has more than 70,000 pounds of supplies packed and ready to go at our St. Paul warehouse. To cover the costs, all funds raised at our upcoming event on April 23rd, 2016 will go towards shipping this next round of supplies in May/June 2016.
By attending the event or making a donation, you can help reduce waste in Minnesota (most of these supplies would end up in Minnesota landfills) and improve lives in Bolivia.
