Sorting Supplies

Mano a Mano collects donated supplies from the Twin Cities and ships them to Bolivia, where they are distributed by our counterpart organizations to support our network of projects and also given to other organizations that work with those in need throughout Bolivia. Almost all of the supplies we receive are destined for Minnesota landfills; with this program we are able to reduce waste in the US and make a difference in Bolivia.

One of our biggest volunteer needs is help collecting, sorting, and packing these donated supplies to get them ready to ship to Bolivia, which we do 2-3 times a year. Each year we collect and ship between 100,000-200,000 pounds of supplies – medical supplies and equipment, school supplies, tools and construction supplies, office supplies, and others.
