School Kits Project
Each year we put together school kits that are shipped by the Mennonite Central Committee to disadvantaged children
around the world.
Each School Kit Bag includes new items:
7 spiral or perforated-page Notebooks (80 pg)
4 spiral or perforated-page notebooks totalling (500–600 pg)
8 unsharpened Pencils
1 Ruler (flat, good quality; must indicate 30 cm)
12 Coloured Pencils (in packaging)
1 large Eraser
2 black or blue Ballpoint Pens
1 small metal Pencil Sharpener (one or two holes)
We especially need notebooks & rulers, but could use more pencil sharpeners, coloured pencils & erasers. The big stores put these on sale in August, so pick some up and let us know so we can all pick some up too! You can be reimbursed for the items by submitting your receipt.
Financial Donations Welcome!
It costs approximately $16 to fill each school bag, so we have a jar on the table at the back of the sanctuary for donations. If you include your name or write a cheque (marked “School Kits Project”), your donation will be included on your church tax receipt.
Thank-you to everyone who has sewed bags & stitched ties for this project! You are awesome!
