One World Goods will be collecting school supplies throughout the month of August to ship to needy children around the world.

. You can help children here in the United States and all over the world with the basics for school. We partner with the Mennonite Central Committee. School kits are their most requested item. Notebooks and pencils are treasures for families who struggle to afford basic school supplies. School kits are often requested after disasters, helping bring normalcy to the lives of children whose families have been forced to flee their homes.

Last year we collected 250 kits! Thank you for all your support! Please bring supplies to the store in August.

A kit consists of the following supplies.

  • 4 spiral notebooks (8.5″ x 10.5′, 70 sheets)
  • 8 unsharpened pencils
  • 1 ruler (flat, flexible plastic with both 30cm and 12 inch markings)
  • 12 colored pencils in packaging
  • 1 large pink pencil eraser
  • $1 for shipping

Please do not worry about collecting supplies in quantities that match the parameters of the kit.  Once we have received all materials we sort the supplies into kits to ship oversees.  Odd quantities of supplies and non-compliant items are donated locally.
