 CHILDREN'S HOME SOCIETY TO ACCEPT $116,000 WORTH OF HURRICANE
 RELIEF SUPPLIES FROM JAPANESE COMPANY, SANRIO INC.
 MIAMI, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- A truck carrying 214 cartons of T-shirts, footwear, and school supplies will be delivered to the Children's Home Society at 800 N.W. 15th St. on Thursday, Sept. 17 at 8:30 a.m. courtesy of Sanrio, Inc. The drop-off point is an emergency shelter, known as the McLamore Children's Center, for children ranging in age from 1 to 9.
 The Japanese company, whose U.S. operations are headquartered in San Francisco, is donating $116,000 worth of its merchandise to the Children's Home Society to help the children of South Dade who were caught in the devastation of Hurricane Andrew. Watkins Motor Lines is shipping merchandise for free.
 "Our company was founded on the philosophy that children should be treated with dignity and respect," said Etsuo Iida, executive vice president of Sanrio, Inc., a manufacturer and retailer of children's goods. "That is why we feel privileged to be able to offer these small gifts as a token of our concern for the children of South Dade."
 According to Deborah Clayman Kainen of the Children's Home Society, the organization lost four group homes for teenagers during the hurricane. One location in Cutler Ridge was home to several unwed mothers and their babies.
 "The kids who are in our care are among the most vulnerable in today's society," said Kainen. "The hurricane was an especially difficult blow for many of them, but thanks to companies like Sanrio, we will be able to continue meeting their needs as we rebuild."
 The Children's Home Society of Florida was founded to assist abused, neglected, and unwanted children of all ages. It currently operates two emergency shelters, the Linda Ray Infant Center, Project SMILE, a comprehensive program for infants and children with AIDS, and The American Children's Home, a long-term care facility for children ages 18 months to 12 years old, which sustained heavy damages during Hurricane Andrew. The displaced teens have been relocated by the Children's Home Society to temporary locations in downtown Miami.
