April 2016 Spotlight – Our Loading Team

Apr - Loading team SmileWe have terrific volunteers that show up every time we’re ready to load a shipment. It takes two hours to pack everything in tight to honor our motto, “We ship no air”. Each 40’ container can hold up to 20,000 lbs. of equipment and supplies. These shipments are usually worth between $200,000 and $300,000. In March, our team loaded two shipments that totaled $458,086! We’re grateful for their time and effort given freely to this ministry of helping others. If you haven’t seen the 2-minute time lapse video of their packing skills, click HERE  and scroll down to play the “Loading 100th shipment” video.

The loading team invites you to register at AmazonSmile and choose Hands of Hope Northwest as your favorite charity. Each time you purchase something on smile.amazon.com, a percentage of your purchase will be sent to support the ministry of HOHNW.
