Last Call For School Supplies

The school year in Honduras runs from February to November. School is free and mandatory up to the sixth grade. But, children must provide their own uniforms and school supplies. The average person in Honduras earns only $3,000/year. This makes purchasing school supplies a luxury for many families. Because of the financial burden many kids do not go to school.

This is the fourth year in a row we will be providing school supplies to hundreds of Honduran kids and making a year of school a reality for them. Take a look at videos of our school supply distribution from 2010 and 2011.

Each year we ask people like you to send money or school supplies. The school supplies are distributed in January. We must receive all money or school supplies by December 31st. It takes 14 days for packages to arrive from the U.S. (no matter how they are mailed). So if you are interested in being part of this great ministry you must send your support by December 17th.

If you wish to support this project with financial help you can give via credit or debit card by going HERE.

If you wish to mail supplies you can send the following items:
colored pens/pencils
crayons
binders
pencils
individual pencil sharpeners
erasers
colored chalk
blackboard erasers
paper (all kinds)
finger paint (small containers)
markers
backpacks and book bags
play-do
glue sticks

It can all be sent to:
Mike Pettengill
PO Box 1090
La Ceiba, Atlantida
Honduras
Central America

Please be in prayer for the kids of Honduras.
