After a mission trip to Juarez Mexico around 2004, my wife wanted to start an item drive at her college to collect for those in need in Juarez. We called it Amigos for Mexico at Grove City College. We knew Art and Becky owned a trailer that they would take the almost 2,000 mile trip back and forth several times a year and we could simply add the items to their trailer to be delivered. After the success of the first item drive we saw the need to create an organization since we wanted to continue to expand and reach out, and thus Root International was born. Now with more trailers, more donations, more locations, and more people, Root International is continuing to grow. While not directly tied into one particular denomination, Root International strives to pass on Biblical messages while providing donated goods to those who need them. Root International is a great organization to be involved with that does great things for the community and beyond.
