Shopping Resources for Guatemala Donations

Families Helping Families

Each summer Valley Life Church hosts a service trip to Guatemala through Now Is The Time For Missions. The purpose of this trip is to BE the good news to our brothers and sisters in Christ who live in the areas surrounding Antigua, Guatemala. A significant part of this trip is to provide clothes to children of families living in extreme poverty. We bring on average 2000 pounds of donations each summer, most of which are clothes. Throughout the year we collect and receive donations of new and like-new clothes. Our goal this year is to bring as much new clothing as possible, and only bring the best of the like-new clothing items. In order to do this, we need to be intentional with our donation purchases. Below you will find links to email lists from some stores that we have found to have great deals on children's clothes. Please sign-up to these email lists to receive announcements of sales as well as special coupons that will stretch your donation purchases.
