The 2018 Project Respond aid drive kicked off in January and is off to a great start. We are excited to be able to once again provide our supporters this opportunity to donate various humanitarian aid to the children God has entrusted to our care. We have also scheduled our 2018 Project Respond mission trip to deliver this aid to the children. We have seen over and over the effects this trip has had on peoples lives. This trip taken annually in October is one of our most popular trips every year. You can CLICK HERE for more details on that trip. We will once again be having a Shoe Collection Celebration day. This year it will be once again be held at Calvary Church of the Quad Cities. You can read more info on the collection day HERE.
Another Child Foundation provides humanitarian aid to our Romania partner, Fundatia Buckner to improve the living conditions and well-being of the children and families we assist. Through these support drives we demonstrate the love that God has put onto our hearts to transform the hearts of those less fortunate. Each year ACF sends a large shipping container of humanitarian aid items to Romania to support the ongoing work. Typical items which are sent each year are: new shoes, winter boots, socks, school supplies, blankets/quilts, winter coats, back-packs and clothing.
Last year Another Child Foundation collected over 21,000 items from 47 different churches and organizations to send to Romania. “It is awesome to see support come from all parts of the country supporting our children and families in Romania”, says ACF Executive Director- Tim Oloffson. Over the past few years ACF has received support from Iowa, Illinois, Louisiana, and Tennessee. This year ACF anticipates 70 churches and organizations from 4 states to once again participate in the collection of this vital humanitarian aid.
