The 2020 Project Respond aid drive will kick off in January and we expect it to be an even better year than last. We are excited to be able to once again provide our supporters the opportunity to donate various humanitarian aid to the children God has entrusted to our care. We have also scheduled our 2020 Project Respond mission trip to deliver this aid to the children. We have seen over and over the life changing impact this trip has had on peoples lives. This annual trip is one of our most popular trips every year. You can CLICK HERE for more details. We will once again be having a Shoe Collection Celebration day! This year it will be held Saturday, October 3 at First United Methodist Church in Geneseo, Illinois from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The address is 203 E. Park St. Geneseo, Illinois.
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 of God in order to transform the hearts of those less fortunate. Each year ACF sends a large shipping container of humanitarian aid to Romania to support this ongoing work. Typical items which are sent each year are: new shoes, winter boots, socks, school supplies, blankets/quilts, sports equipment, winter coats, back-packs and clothing.
Last year, Another Child Foundation collected over 22,000 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 or more churches and organizations from four states to once again participate in the collection of this vital humanitarian aid.
