Operation Compassion to Send 7 Semi-Loads Within First Few Weeks After Tragedy

By , September 21, 2001

Operation Compassion continues to assist in the New York City disaster. Altogether, they will be sending 7 semi-loads within the first few weeks. They have begun collecting supplies upon request from the ground rescue workers there. At this time, the relief workers have requested they send batteries, towels, toothbrushes, socks, snack-foods and candy, as well as 2000 blankets. Also collected was a semi-load of gifts from the “Feed the Children” organization in Nashville, TN. The gifts were donated by school children who wrote the names of the firemen on the gifts. They wanted to do something special for them to extend their ‘thanks’ for their continued efforts.

The response to help has been so great in the U.S. that Operation Compassion has even been asked to pick up loads of items in New York not needed by rescue workers to take to other emergency organizations throughout the United States who help orphans, disaster areas, etc.

Operation Compassion will continue to aid the rescue workers in the upcoming weeks and throughout the U.S. where they are needed. They extend their sincere thanks to all those who have donated during this time of tragedy.
