What do school supplies, vegetable seeds, wheelchairs, and teddy bears have in common?

They are among the donated materials used by the Global Aid Network to meet physical and spiritual needs in countries around the world.

The Global Aid Network, or GAiN, is the humanitarian aid arm of Campus Crusade for Christ. As a multi-national network of ministries, they demonstrate the love of God through relief and development projects.

During their Fall Work Project on October 8th through 17th, 4,792 volunteers gathered in Lancaster County, Penn., to process and package humanitarian aid materials, including clothing, seed packs for gardens, school supplies and donated medical equipment.

Those items are headed for places like Siberia, Mauritania, Guatemala, and Tajikistan.
