The Bluffton Distribution Center houses various ministries, including a local food bank and special shipments to Mexico and Haiti.
Shipments to Mexico and Haiti
The Bluffton Distribution Center packs and ships sea containers to two main areas in Haiti: Les Cayes and Bonnie Fin. Les Cayes is the location for HarvestCall’s Construction Department and Bonnie Fin is where Hospital Lumiere is located.
Donations for Mexico are collected at the Bluffton Distribution Center. Nearly every month, a truck transfers these items to Fairbury, where they are packed for Mexico.
Food Bank Ministry for Wells County
A substantial portion of the building houses a Food Bank ministry. This serves primarily Wells County families. Approximately 200 families come through the Food Bank each month to receive food, clothing, household items and personal hygiene products. This Food Bank is supported by local churches, businesses, schools, postal drive and individuals.
