While shopping for your back-to-schoolers, pick up some extra supplies for kids in need all around the globe. We’ll send them to the Mennonite Central Committee for distribution to children who are most in need. Each school kit includes the following:

  • 4 spiral or perforated-pages notebooks (8.5 in x 10.5 in and 70 sheets)
  • 8 new unsharpened pencils
  • 1 ruler (flat, good quality; must indicate 30 cm; inch markings optional)
  • 12 colored pencils (in packaging)
  • 1 large eraser
  • 2 new black or blue ballpoint pens
  • 1 small metal pencil sharpener (one or two holes)
  • $1 for shipping

While we ask that you limit donations to these specific items, it is not necessary to donate supplies based on multiples of the kit quantity.  So don’t worry if you have extra of one item or not enough of another.  At the end of our collection we will sort everything into appropriate quantities and donate any excess items locally.

Last year the  Mennonite Central Committee shipped 78,035 school kits to Jordan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iraq, Zambia, Ukraine, Somalia, Burkina Faso, Canada, the U.S. Learn more here.

Please deliver all donations to One World Goods by August 31st.

Thank you for your support!
