Por Colombia NY Secures $10,000+ of Donated Clothing

We are proud to announce that we secured a donation of new clothes valued at over $10,000 to be donated to Colombia’s less fortunate.

We worked with Caring for Colombia and Primero lo Primero to secure the donation. The executive board paid for the car rental, storage, packaging and prepared over 15 boxes to ship. Por Colombia Nacional secured the shipping from here to Texas.

Now we need your help in paying for the shipment to Colombia. We have almost 500 pounds of clothes and have identified non-profits and locations in Medellin (Fundacion Mas Alla Del Sol) and Bogota (to be confirmed) that will be receiving the clothing.

Please help us by donating even five dollars.  Every dollar counts. Let’s make a difference together.
