Another Child Foundation is collecting humanitarian aid for orphans and at-risk children from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Friday, July 28, at Calvary Church of the Quad-Cities, 4700 53rd Ave., Moline. A special prayer time will be 5 p.m.
Local churches, individuals and civic groups will collect new shoes, socks and blankets and other items for children ages 14 and younger. Because of customs regulations, donated shoes and socks must be brand new. For more information and to learn how to volunteer, call 815-303-1725 or visit anotherchild.org.
Last year, 3,600 pairs of new shoes were donated to vulnerable children in Romania. Volunteers are needed to help prepare the shoes for shipping. Also, there are opportunities for people to travel to Romania as part of a mission team to help distribute the shoes and aid.
