Packing Party

Mar 05, 2020

This past Saturday, was a fun first for Soccer Chaplains United as we held a packing and sorting party for a couple of our upcoming Community Projects.

There were six or seven volunteers (besides my own family) who gave a portion of their time to help sort, count, and pack. The first project was for a large request from Musana which is shipping containers to the country for school rooms. This is our first time working with Musana and their project going to Uganda. It was unique as we packed items into specially purchased bins which will be delivered in a few weeks as they finish their build out.

A bit of an assembly line was formed to count and then pack the gear into containers.

The chaos and fun of the day was added to with a large donation of gear from the Colorado Rapids just the day before our sorting and packing party. I was able to fill our minivan to capacity with many of the boxes that held much of the gear.

I pause for a picture outside Dick’s Sporting Goods Park with a donation of soccer gear from the Colorado Rapids which filled the van to capacity.

The volunteers also began sorting and counting for a second project — this one for Valor Christian’s Costa Rica mission. Valor’s soccer coach and team leader, Brian Shultz even stopped by to give a few minutes toward helping with sorting and counting.

With space heaters a’blazin’ we worked in the garage for our sort
Not the best conditions, but not the worst conditions; we got a lot done!
Stacks of boxes and bins felt overwhelming at times, but God is good!
