Appomattox, VA - Gleaning for the World is packing up supplies for its first shipment ever to Jordan.
We stopped by Gleaning's Appomattox warehouse Friday for a look at the supplies. Many Syrians have been seeking refuge in Jordan to escape their brutal Civil War. To help, Gleaning's looking for personal care items like shampoo, adult diapers, nail clippers and more.
For Gleaning, it's important to do this work in the Arab world too.
"If we can show the Christian compassion, we can show that we are not their enemy, we are not their friend, there's a God that still cares about them. We want to be able to show God's love and to earn the right to just be Christians in an Arab world,"said Rev. Ron Davidson, president.
The shipment will go out in the middle of the month, so you still have time to donate. Here is a complete list of supplies:
Women's Hygiene supplies
New Undergarments including: underpants, T-shirts, socks
New or gently used blankets
Bars of soap
Food (non perishable, no pork)
Infant food/Baby formula
