Container Aid

with Dignity

Containers of Love and Hope.

 
NuDay has been shipping containers from the United States into areas with need since the early stages of NuDay's founding. Containers are filled with a wide array of items, such as clothing, household items, hygiene items, medical equipment, and other supplies that are evaluated as a necessity. 

NuDay works through our local field partners to get aid where it is most needed. Containers are shipped in full compliance with US export policies.

Read on to learn more about how NuDay ships containers, and what happens once they arrive to their destination.

Uniting for humanity

NuDay operates out of its New Hampshire warehouse. Located in Derry, New Hampshire, the warehouse stores all donations that are collected from the various donation points on a regular basis. NuDay's warehouse staff support the operation of the warehouse and prepare donations for container shipment.

NuDay loads containers on a semi-regular basis as part of its Container Days programming. Container Days are open to volunteers. NuDay prides itself on the NuDay family we have established across New England. With a volunteer base of over 2,500 people, NuDay supporters come from a diversity of backgrounds and life experiences, yet are united in a common belief of humanity. There is nothing more impactful for us than knowing that we are unified for humanity.

During Container Days, volunteers help sort donations and load pre-sorted donations onto containers. Each container is a 40-foot vessel, and NuDay is careful to pack it to the brim while maintaining the integrity of more delicate furniture items. This means everything arrives to the destination ready-to-use.

Dignified distributions

Containers are typically shipped via ocean freight. Our staff make sure to take inventory of the contents as they unload items in preparation for distribution. 

Humanitarian items are distributed soon after arrival, due to extensive local need.

A gift of love & hope

Humanitarian items sent via NuDay's containers support dignified and empowered lives for women and children.

Certain other items might be used for NuDay's other projects. This includes books and school supplies for NuDay's educational programming, support for our livelihood initiatives via sending yarn, sewing machines, and crafting supplies, or even sending a gift, like a stuffed animal, to a sponsored orphan via the containers.

 

The resonating message is clear: displaced and vulnerable people are in our hearts, as we send them love and hope from around the world.
