2011 Container Shipment Preparation Begins

2011 Container Shipment Preparation Begins

Saturday, February 26 was a great day to start preparations for the next container to be shipped to Swaziland.  Approximately 15 people joined Fred Evans at the Hobby Lobby warehouse for a day of unloading, sorting, cleaning and consolidating equipment.  This container will be primarily filled with medical and dental equipment and supplies for the Gerald Gassett Memorial Dental Clinic being prepared in Swaziland.  Wooden crates were placed for packing, “slats” put on the rails of each bin, and the crates were filled and left ready for a forklift to move to shelving in an organized group.  Lots of heavy work was made easier by those who were able to be a part of this workday.  They had a lot of fun too!  Thanks to all who helped.  Watch for future workdays to be announced as plans move forward to prepare the container for shipment.
