Be strong and lift things with Artists for World Peace!

Artists for World Peace is seeking volunteers to help prepare a 20′ container of medical supplies, equipment and other needed items that will be shipped to Tanzania in preparation for their July trip to set up an eye and dental clinic. 

This bear is so strong, it could load medical equipment into a shipping container!

On Friday, April 1 they need 3-4 strong young people to help pick up and move some equipment form various locations to the shipping location in the late afternoon. Two doctors are donating the supplies for eye examination offices. Artists for World Peace rented a large U-Haul truck to pack up the examination supplies, but they need help do this and need to get all items onto the truck. 
Meet at 377 Ridge Road, Middletown at 2pm on Friday- call (860) 685-1789 if you need help or directions. You can work straight through from 2-6pm or come by for a few hours. 
Lunch provided. 

Saturday, April 2, they need a large team of volunteers to help load the 20’ container of medical supplies. They only have a 2-hour window to pack the container, so they need all the help they can get! This is a great opportunity for a sports team or a club. Meet at: Ace Hardware, 480 South Main Street, Middletown, from 9:30am-12pm 

Contact Wendy to sign up for a volunteer slot on Friday or Saturday:
