On Sunday September 7th, we encourage everyone to bring school supplies for the UMCOR School kits.  School kits provide tools for education, which changes lives.  In countries where children don’t have books, school supplies or classrooms, a school kit may be their only educational resource.  Here’s what we need:

  • 3 notebooks, approx. 8 ½ x 11 wide ruled (210-250 sheets total) spiral or bound
  • 1 30cm metric ruler
  • 1 box of 24 crayons (ONLY 24)
  • 1 2 ½ inch eraser
  • 1 blunt scissors (metal)
  • 1 hand pencil sharpener
  • 6 unsharpened pencils with erasers

All items are placed in a sturdy cloth bag, 14” wide x 16” long (finished size) with 22” handles.  Place all loose items on top of paper.  Turn items sideways and slide into cloth bag.  Fold over top of bag so loose items don’t fall out.  Do not put loose items in zip lock bags. Alternatively, you can bring individual supplies and donate them, and we will make sure they get into a completed kit!
