A donation center will be part of Moving Mountains Mission to Santa Maria de Jesus, Guatemala. In order to make the donation center as productive and meaningful as possible, a list of desired items is listed below.
Please only bring items that are new or very gently used. Stained or ripped items will not be distributed.
Garage sales, rummage sales, family and friends can be great resources for items. Typically, we have around 450 children going through the donation center in Santa Maria each year. Our goal is to give approximately equal valued items to all children. In order to have an equal distribution of items, we ask that you collect a variety of sizes for both boys and girls when you are gathering donations.

**Please note: We are also collecting monetary
donations to purchase some of the heavier, more
difficult things to pack – such as soap, toothpaste,
etc. These items are actually easy to acquire in
Guatemala, and easier to buy there than transport
ourselves.
**We are also collecting money to purchase
some shoes in Guatemala for the “hard to fit”
sizes in American shoes
**In order to make our donation's center run
smoothly, we ask that you remove all price tags,
hangers, and packaging before you pack. Shoes
should be paired and mates tied or taped
together. New packs of socks and undies should
have cardboard and plastic tabs removed. Likesized
socks and underwear can be zip-locked and
labeled with the correct size on the outside of the
bag.
