Ten Thousand Villages Montreat, in conjunction with the Mennonite Central Committee, is collecting School Kits for refugee and displaced children in developing countries. School kits are the Committee’s most-requested item. Notebooks and pencils become treasures to families who struggle to afford basic school supplies. School kits also are given to refugee and displaced children, helping students and teachers to add some normalcy to disrupted lives. The kits are frequently requested after disasters. MCC sends school kits to places including Afghanistan, Jordan and Kenya.
To prepare a School Kit, please include the following items in a flat bag or a ziplock bag:
• 4 spiral or perforated notebooks (8 1/2 x 10 1/2 in and 70 sheets)
• 4 unsharpened pencils
• 1 ruler(flat, flexible plastic; indicating both 30 cm and 12 in)
• 12 colored pencils (in packaging)
• 1 large pencil eraser
School Kits can be dropped off at the Montreat Ten Thousand Villages during store hours from August 1 through September 30, 2014. For more information, please visit the http://www.mcc.org/kits/school website.
Donors will receive a 25% discount off one non-sale item at the time the School Kit is dropped off at Ten Thousand Villages.
