Any good connection on getting items TO Dallas for shipping to the cayes? I've got lots of donations but haven't been able to find a way to get them to Dallas economically. I may be able to get them to Austin this weekend if that helps. Anyone in Austin to collect and get the stuff to Dallas?

I have a box of clothing that I have been trying to send and it doesn't appear to be an easy thing to do. I realize that clothing is not the first priority that is needed in San Pedro, but I gathered this before I realized their needs. We are donating money via the Town Council also...

Can I send this box of clothing via your plane in Texas?

BarbaraK,
You might check to see if BAX Global ships from your area. I know that they ship to Dallas, San Anton and Houston. Their rates are pretty reasonable. Ask for back relief rates. This is reduced rate at 1-3 day delivery.

The type of lanterns that uses the propane tanks.. the little ones that we
use in the green cans... I think they are coleman mantle lanterns.. they come
with the little lanterns and you light them up.. they burn brightly.. used
for camping.
