According to a media release, hundreds of families, schools, and church groups are expected to converge in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, as a part of the Global Aid Network’s Mission Packing Project.
From October 10-15, Global Aid Network, the humanitarian aid arm of Campus Crusade for Christ International, will open the doors of its Pennsylvania Distribution Center near Mount Joy to people of all ages who want to help needy communities around the world.
The news release says this aid will be shipped to numerous locations around the world including Central Asia, the Gambia, Guatemala, Ukraine, and Zimbabwe, just to name a few.
One of the main focuses this year will be sending food and other vital aid to the Horn of Africa. Due to the drought and famine there, more than 10 million people are facing starvation.
Due to the variety of work to be done at the distribution center, mission work becomes a family affair with people flying in even from the west coast in order to participate.
“I continue to be amazed at the number of volunteers who come from all over the United States to work at our distribution center,” said Duane Zook, CEO of Global Aid Network.
