Back to School Supplies   Leave a comment

Back to School.  We will give 70 kids (ages 4-15) their annual back-to-school supply package on March 6. The package includes a notebook, a sticker sheet, 50 sheets of white paper, and a supply pouch with 2 pencils, a red pen, a blue pen, colored pencils, sharpener, eraser, paper clip, 2 triangles, ruler, and protractor. The total cost (we bought the supplies the last week of December, before prices rose in January) was $170 (it would have been $270, but I had materials left over from last year, or donated).

Adopt a child. What we give out in the school supply kit is only the basics. The cost to buy all the necessary supplies (including uniform, shoes, and backpack) for the year is $50 per child. Many parents cannot afford this and thus their kids go all year without the required materials. We are grateful to the sponsors who have donated—already 11 kids have received a full or partial donation for this school year, which is a blessing to them and their parents. Feel free to send a specific donation to Wordsower for your sponsored child (put my name and your child´s name with “back to school” on a sticky note and attach it to the check).
