Europe briefs: EUCOM donates goods to Latvian centers
RIGA, Latvia — The U.S. European Command gave more than $103,000 worth of goods Thursday to three social welfare centers in Latvia.
The furniture, cookware, appliances, recreational equipment and musical instruments were given by EUCOM’s Humanitarian Assistance Excess Property Program. Under the program, EUCOM provides goods no longer needed by the U.S. government “to countries that are not only strategically important but that truly need these items to raise their civilian community’s quality of life,” Vicki Landes, the program’s manager, stated in a news release.
The EUCOM excess property program donated $7 million in goods to 36 countries in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, according to the release.
