Church Donates Food, Clothes to Russia and Estonia

Needy families in the republics of Russia and Estonia are benefiting from a shipment of 45,000 pounds of food from Frankfurt, Germany, Church members.

The food will be distributed to Latter-day Saints in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Vyborg in Russia, and to Tallinn, Estonia. The remainder of the shipments will be given to other families in those areas.

Stakes in Hamburg, Germany, are preparing a similar shipment to follow this donation. Members in the Dresden Germany Stake are sending a 10,000-pound shipment of food and children’s clothing to Kiev in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, a 240,000-pound shipment of used clothing is being prepared in Salt Lake City to send to Russia. This shipment was donated by members in the United States to various Deseret Industries stores. The clothing will be given to four international relief agencies; Food for the Hungry, Feed the Children, Innervision, and International Christian Aid. These agencies will, in turn, distribute the clothing to those in need.

Seven weeks ago, the Church sent a similar 40,000-pound shipment of food to Russia.
