Donate Supplies or Equipment 

Goods, materials, and equipment are a very practical way of helping. Due to the high costs transporting equipment to Honduras, our specific in-kind requests are generally limited to what our volunteers can take inchecked baggage on flights. (ACTS is in discussion with a manufacturer headquartered in Pennsylvania with a facility in Honduras about occasional transport of large items.) Listed below are the types of things that ACTS needs on a regular basis:
