CoffeeCup Software is located in Corpus Christi, Texas (a couple of
hours south of Houston), we are calling upon anyone who receives
this e-mail to send 'Goods' to our office. This will directly help
the thousands upon thousands of American refugees that will be
entering Houston, Beaumont, and throughout Texas within the next
days and weeks.

Our office will collect what you send and will drive these items by
cargo truck to the refugees where they are located. Over 25,000
people will arrive at the Houston Astrodome tonight and we expect
many waves of refugees over the next month. We will collect items
for the next 60 days and will make trips once a week or more as
needed.

Currently many Charitable organizations are overwhelmed and we want
to make sure the Families and Children will be given what they
really need without wait. Send as much as you wish, we have plenty
of storage.

Some items we believe they need are:

Diapers, Baby Wipes, Infant Care Items
Personal Care Items (soap, razors, shaving cream, toothpaste, hygeine
items)
Clothing (socks, underwear, shirts, shoes, pants, shirts)
Long Distance Calling Cards, Batteries, FM Radios, Walkie-Talkies
Toys (coloring books, crayons, puzzles, any activity toy)
and more....

Our Address is:

CoffeeCup Software
