HARBEL, Liberia, West Africa (Nov. 10, 2008) — Firestone Natural Rubber Co. L.L.C. said it will extend its program of shipping humanitarian aid on its ships to help rebuild Liberia.
More than 60 shipments have been made since the program began sending goods on Firestone ships to Monrovia, Liberia, in 2006.
Cargo space is available to qualified charitable organizations with the ocean freight expense covered by Firestone, the company said.
Firestone accepts containers of non-perishable foods, medical supplies, new and used clothing, schoolbooks and other relief goods and delivers them to Liberia on behalf of the donor charity.
