Home in the Box Packing Event

Each year around October 1st, 40-foot containers are shipped to Chimbote filled with new and gently used supplies and equipment that are difficult and costly to obtain within Peru. The container task force works with the mission staff to compile specific wish lists each year so that we are sure to collect and ship the items that are needed most. Lakeville Rotary Club has supported the Home in a Box because they are easy to pack and can be stored at the mission for distribution throughout the year. 

Friends of Chimbote - The Home in a Box project helps provide essential household items to families who have arrived in Chimbote empty handed or lost their belongings in a fire or other tragedy. The ACAF social workers visit families living in the barrios every day and assess the needs. The cost to purchase a complete Home in a Box package is approximately $100.
