As the back-to-school sales begin, our August need of the month is school supplies: pens, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, glue (8 oz bottles), colored pencils (12 packs), scissors, rulers, watercolors, calculators, compasses, and protractors, to be exact. As you head to the store with your children to pick up their school supplies, consider picking up another set or two for students in Guatemala. They’ll be very glad you did.
Many families in Guatemala can’t afford school supplies let alone the school tuition. With your help, these children will get to experience the thrill of the first day of school, a new vocabulary word memorized, and a tough algebra problem solved. Help us reach this month’s goal.
