Ossining Residents Help People in Africa/Cameroon

AIDSfreeAFRICA asked for in-kind donations and Ossining residents responded generously. Please read on to learn how you can participate in a container leaving September 30.

I wish you could see the happy faces I see when I oversee AIDSfreeAFRICA's distribution of your gifts. Here are our neighbors contributing to the most recent shipment. Long time donor Dr. Tullio Bruno from donated many different items over the last five years, some are vitamins, condoms, aspirin, and razor blades. Dr. Etta Lobel, a new donor gave toothpaste. Dr. Frank Frustace, from Hudson Pharmacy and Medical Supplies also newly on board donated petroleum yell, lotion, toothpaste and more. My friend Ann has been donating medical supplies and adult diapers for a disabled child in Yaoundé. My friends Delia, David, and Betty efforts resulted in a collection of 45 large boxes filled with soccer balls, cleats, jerseys and soccer related equipment. Former Westchester Community College student gave the gift of two computers.  My friend Laura has been collecting office supplies, soccer trophies, warm winter clothes, and shoes for years. We are collecting winter clothes, especially for babies and small children. Yes imagine, Cameroonians think that 80 degrees is cold!

Our most pressing wish for this container is laptop computers, Pentium
4 or higher.

Thank you for your donation. If you have not had a chance to contribute, give me a call.  We will pick up items. We thank all of our repeat donors and welcome you if you are considering becoming a new donor.
