Provisions ready for Distribution!

By July 19, 2012Blog

It all started over 30 years ago, when Serving Hands International’s (SHI) founders, Terrence and Barbara Caster,saw a news report of children rummaging through trash for food in Tijuana B.C. Mexico. The Casters knew they had to do something. They recruited family and friends for monetary support and donations of food, packed up their truck and traveled from San Diego to Tijuana to feed the poor. Their efforts have come a long way. Presently, SHI Partners serve over 20,000 poor families with fresh fruit, vegetables, rice, beans and other food staples on a bi-weekly basis. SHI Partners conduct site visits with the families receiving the food. “Most of the families receiving the provisions are families who migrate to Tijuana in hopes of finding a stable job to support their family. There are also many abandoned elderly and single mothers trying to make ends meet. These provisions help meet those needs.” Said Sister Milagros of Convento San Charbel. The food donations provided are made possible by our sponsor A-1 Self Storage. Thank you to A-1 Self Storage and donors like you!
