Crown-Armstrong ships donated goods to San Salvador

Jul 20, 2015
The consignment is part of a cooperation between the company and Father Frank’s Kids that ships donated goods to Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) homes in Central and South America.
The donated goods are gathered through donations of clothing, medical provisions and other critical supplies given by parishioners of St. Isidore Church in Danville, CA. These items are carefully packed by a team of volunteers led by Ann Ferrante, wife of Tori Ferrante the company’s President International. Once packed at the church facilities, the goods are shipped to one of four orphanages run by the global organization (NPH). Since 2005, Orphanages in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras have received 1-2 containers per year from Crown-Armstrong and Father Frank’s Kid’s.

This latest container being shipped to El Salvador comes with a special request for workshop tools. Parishioners donated a welding machine, air driven tools, a large tool compressor, a large assortment of hand tools as well as the usual clothing and supplies.  Crown-Armstrong filled the remaining space of the high-cube 40 foot container with office furniture and commercial appliances which were donated by their clients from office moves managed by Crown-Armstrong.  

NPH El Salvador has over 300 children living at the home and range in age from infants to 16 year olds. Over 120 volunteers devote many hours of care to make the home a safe and loving place to grow up. Many of these Salvadorian children became orphaned during a prolonged 12 year civil war that devastated the country. The El Salvador shipment arrived in San Salvador on May 30th and will be unloaded by the children at their campus.

NPH cares for over 3200 children in the Central and South American countries of Bolivia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru. More information on the homes can be found at
