ShowTown organized a clothing donation made to the victims of the massive explosion that occurred in Beirut Lebanon on August 4, 2020 in which over 200 people were killed, 3,500 wounded and 300,000 left homeless. We collected, sorted and packaged approximately one ton of good quality clothes and then trucked the boxes to Long Island City, NY where they were transferred to a ship container destined for Beirut in late October. Thank you to all of the generous donors in our community as well as those folks who helped in the collection!
