School Kits Collection

One of Emmanuel’s favorite service projects is collecting the items and packing up school kits for children in places where these very basic necessities may be more than a family can afford.  We will be collecting the items through September.  Some important guidelines to remember

  • Please give new items only.
  • Please do not donate items with any religious symbols, messages or your group’s name.
  • Please do not donate any items decorated with a US flag, patriotic or military symbols  or references to the armed forces including, camouflage.

__  notebooks of wide-or college-ruled paper, totaling 70 pages (4 notebooks per kit)  No loose-leaf paper, please

__  blunt scissors (safety scissors with embedded steel blades work well)

__  30 centimeter ruler, or a ruler with cm. on one side and inches on the other

__  pencil sharpener

__  #2 pencils with erasers (new & unsharpened) (5 per kit)

__  ball-point pens—black or blue (no gel ink) (5 per kit)
