How to Send a Care Package
1. Shop and Pack
First, using our suggested packing list as a guide, shop for the items you wish to send. We encourage you to follow the leading of your heart as you decide who and how to help, so you may include other items if you wish, as long as they are not liquids, gels, food, or perishable items. You should also not send batteries of any type.
Important: Pack your items as tightly in the box as you can. Do not leave extra space. We are charged by volume for shipping, so if there is empty space in the box, we pay to ship the air!
2. Submit Your Online Care Package Information Form
Next, click the link below to access the online form to submit the information pertaining to your care package.
3. Mail Your Care Package
After submitting your online form, you will send your care package or packages via USPS, UPS, FedEx, or another shipping company to our U.S. address where we gather care packages for shipment:
Africa Care Package
PO Box 15
7819 Monclova Rd
Monclova, OH 43542
To minimize costs, we gather a large quantity of care packages together and ship them all at once in a container on a ship. About two months later, the shipment arrives in the port of the destination country where it clears customs and is prepared for distribution. We then take the care packages and personally deliver them to needy families and students.
We cover all the costs of shipping those items from our consolidation location to the destination country and distributing those items to needy schoolchildren, women, and families. The only cost you bear is the purchase of the specific items and shipping to our consolidation location. However, if you would like to make a financial contribution to help us cover the cost of shipping to Africa, you may do so by clicking the giving button below.
