Ali McIntosh Children Charities (AMCC) will warm the hearts of thousands of Bahamian children this year with their gifts of brand new shoes, care packages, book packages and rice & soy meals. Almost four thousand (4000 lbs) pounds of humanitarian items was imported into the country this past week, to help brighten the faces of many children during the holidays. With the help of their U.S. ministry partner One Hope One Life and its president Pastor Frank Schindler of Dallas Texas, the gifts were arranged and sent to The Bahamas.
The shipment which left the warehouse in Cincinnati Ohio since October 29th, took exactly one month to arrive in the possession of Ali McIntosh Children’s Charities. The items were as follows:
A) Fifteen hundred pairs of new shoes for children
B) Thirteen hundred pounds of rice and soy meal packages
C) More than a thousand care packages that include shampoo, body wash, toothbrush and toothpastes, lotions, and other hygiene items
D) More than a thousand book & pencil packages
The shipment of shoes will help support the ‘Shoes for Tots’ program, which was started three years ago. The program has expanded each year, with Ali McIntosh Children Charities receiving an additional 500 shoes each year to distribute. In the past, the shoes were given to children in New Providence, Grand Bahama, Abaco and Exuma. However, this year, the reach will be expanded to children in Andros, Eleuthera and Cat Island.
In addition to the community organizations that will receive donations, the children at all government children homes will receive shoes, care packages and books packages. This year, the young girls at the Willamae Pratt Centre for Girls will also be receiving care packages.
