AER: Donating to Safe Haven, April 2015

The KAG vessel IKV Melota passed the monetary and hard goods donations to the Tarrant County Women's Shelter.

Their representative drove over and we absolutely packed the truck. At first, I was worried that she was "gonna need a bigger boat". But, due to better education, the donations were actually more appropriate and squishy. We were able to stuff more in because it was not hard.

Originally, donations were physically heavy as we understood it to be food oriented. Boxed. Heavy. As we have learned, the mass has gone down as the value has gone up. Less food and more clothing for the women and children.

So even though the weight figures make it appear that we are not donating as much, we are actually donating more targeted and appropriate lighter items.

We raised $537.27 for SafeHaven. As well as 341 lbs of targeted goods donations.

Strength and Honor,
Ship's Brewer, IKV Melota
