School kit drive
It’s that time again! Global Heart is once again collecting school supplies for disadvantaged children. The school kits, which are received with high praise from students and teachers, are distributed in orphanages, children's shelters, schools for disabled children and refugee camps.
Last year, we collected 103 school kits for children in Syria.
This year, the school kits we collect will go to children in Colombia and Honduras. All school kits must have the same contents, so when they are distributed, all children receive the same items. We also welcome donations by cash or check. If you donate extra materials, we will distribute them to other needy children
Global Heart will collect school kits for the month of August, through September 5th
