AHMEN Christmas Container Info
We have the finalized dates for our Fall shipment: Preload: Saturday October 19th Shipping: Saturday November 16th Arrival in Honduras: November 21-22nd Arrival at La Ceiba: November 28- 29th (3.5 weeks before Christmas) Our contacts in Honduras this trip are Evelyn Castellar and Dr. Noé Guardado Rivera, the Mayor of Jutiapa en Atlántida, Honduras. We will be able to ship items that have been on our prohibited list in the past, so we can ship used clothing, food items, and infant/tube feeding formula on this container. This is not an AHMEN financed shipment, so space on this container is primarily covered by the Shoebox ministry's cargo. All shippers will be responsible for paying their freight costs based on cubic volume. Cost of this shipment is $4.00 per cubic foot.
We are taking donations for Dr Guardado's clinics and Pastor Luna's missions in Tocoa as well as donations for Sister Eleanor at Las Cruzdas. Any donations are welcome, particularly: canned food items, teen clothing, school supplies, and clinic supplies. The container will ship through Porto Castilla and go first to Jutiapa, then to Pastor Luna in Tocoa, then to Las Cruzadas in La Ceiba. Shoeboxes and items for distribution will be delivered at each stop. Last year less than 1/4 of the container was other cargo, and we only had about 3/4 of a container load. This year we estimate that at least 2/3 to 3/4 of the cargo will be shoeboxes. This will limit the amount of space available for other cargo. If you have large or bulky items to ship please contact me ASAP so that we can insure your space. I have attached the team colors list and teh label files for our general support donations here. I will be sending label and manifest files to each of the team leaders who have shipped with us this year. If you know of anyone who needs label files or a manifest template who needs these file let me know. Yours in Service, Pam Greene AHMEN Logistics Coordinator 205.669.9279.
