On October 9, 2011 a ship set sail from the Port of Vancouver carrying with it a container to be delivered to Kampala Uganda. The materials on this shipment are for a very special purpose, to support the children of the Watoto Children’s Choir. The Choir tours throughout the world to raise awareness and funds to support orphan children in Africa.

The container was loaded at our Langley facility and is filled with rubber mats, clothing, filing cabinets, blankets, school supplies, medical equipment, sewing machines and other equipment. Many of these items were supplied by GEMS while others were brought in from Salmon Arm and Victoria. The container, which was generously donated by Big Steel Box Co., was filled by the men of Wagner Hills recovery home.
