**PLEASE DELIVER ALL SCHOOL SUPPLIES BY SEPTEMBER 30, 2016. THANK YOU!**
Common Hope provides the necessary school supplies for more than 3,400 children each year – paying for books, school supplies, and tuition.
We rely on the generosity of our donors to collect approximately $50,000 worth of supplies we need to make this possible.
Please write “school supplies” in the comments section of the donation form!
This year we have once again been given the opportunity to fill a shipping container with supplies, which will then be delivered to our warehouse in Antigua later this year. A shipping container can hold approximately 20 pallets, or enough supplies for all of our students and teachers for the entire 2016 school year. That’s a lot of pencils, pens, markers, and glue!
Whether you live in California, New York, or Minnesota, you can help make our supply drive a success. Organize a supply drive at your church, school, or business, or buy a few extra supplies when you go back-to-school shopping with your kids. Any and all donations help us to reach our goal! If you’re looking to get hands-on, come on over to our warehouse in St. Paul, Minnesota and help us sort, count, and pack supplies. Here’s a quick look at all of the ways you can get involved, and the resources to help you can be found below.
