This trip is the result of many months of planning, organizing, and fund raising. We are grateful to the GLIDE community, our family, and friends who have helped make this trip possible through financial gifts, supply donations, support, and prayers. We couldn't do this without you and we carry you with us as we go!
We have joked with one another that the biggest challenge has been packing. To bring the maximum amount of supplies we can, each team member commits to limiting their personal items (two weeks of clothing, toiletries, and other items) to just a carry on so that our checked baggage can be filled with supplies. As a result, we are bringing 800 pounds of supplies to the Ray of Hope Learning Center.
