El Salvador Calling

BY Jim Cosgrove

March 25-31, 2001 Issue | Posted 3/25/01 at 1:00 PM

 

We're writing in response to “Church Seeks Aid for Salvadorans” (Media Watch, Mar. 4-10), which states that the Church in El Salvador has issued an urgent call for food and clothes due to the earthquakes. Our question is, where do we send clothing donations? There is no address listed. Also, can they use winter clothing? We're unfamiliar with their geography — is it mountainous? Please answer these questions as we would like to send a clothing donation soon.

God bless you, and thank you for your wonderful paper.
