22 tons of clothing processed at Streams in the Desert Lutheran, Tucson
Pastor Tom Dunham of writes:
“On Monday, July 22, two semi loads of clothing arrived from Pennsylvania at Streams in the Desert Lutheran Church in Tucson. The 44,000 pounds of clothing was unloaded by hand and stacked in the church’s storage shed in less than 3 hours.
Members of Streams and many other area churches, totaling 50 volunteers, worked hard in the summer heat in this labor of love.
Over the next three weeks trucks from McAllen, Texas to San Ysidro, California will be arriving to take loads of clothing back to the refugee and asylum centers along the Mexican border. We are truly the church together!”
