Operation Compassion Assists in New York City Disaster

By , September 18, 2001

Operation Compassion has been called by agencies on the ground to assist in the hauling and distribution of donated product for relief workers at ground zero. At this time, Operation Compassion partners have 2 semis distributing products at ground zero – 1 block from the actual disaster location.

Operation Compassion is transporting such products as food, paper products, breads and desserts, soap products, bottled water, canned soups, blankets, personal hygiene items, cots and other nutritional items. Due to the unique nature of this disaster only specific items are being asked for. Many United States corporations are providing Operation Compassion semi loads of these urgently requested products.

Many trucking firms/businesses have loaned semi tractors and trailers for the shipping of donated products.

Although product is donated, shipping is paid for by Operation Compassion National Distribution Center. It costs approximately $1,500 per load in shipping/hauling. For further information, please contact:
