As many of you know, a catastrophic earthquake occurred in Ecuador this past Saturday, April 16, with terrible consequences.


As of this moment, more than 300 deaths have been reported and more than 2,000 people have been seriously injured. The government has declared a state of emergency in six provinces. As many victims of the earthquake have been displaced from their homes, there is an urgent need for simple, everyday items in the country.  Please help victims of this earthquake by donating an item or items from the list below.

  • Non-perishable food (canned food, energy bars, cereal, cookies, etc.)
  • Blankets
  • Water and energy drinks
  • First-aid kits
  • Flashlights
  • Batteries
  • Wipes
  • Baby food
  • Powdered milk
  • Diapers
  • Insect repellent
  • Boxes, packing tape and markers to pack items

All donated items can be dropped off on the designated table in the seating area at FFA and will be delivered by Friday, April 29.  You can also donate directly by visiting the Ecuadorian Consulate at 7061 NW 87th Avenue where there will be a large container for donations.
