School Supplies Needed at YOUTH 2019!
Many of you have been asking about YOUTH 2019 service opportunities. What will you be doing? Where will you be serving?
Well, we are happy to share that there will be a few different service options available. Today we’d like to introduce you to one opportunity in particular, because it requires a little extra planning on your part.
We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the Midwest Mission based in Pawnee, Illinois just a few hours away from Kansas City. Midwest Mission distributes health, education, and relief supplies locally and around the world. During YOUTH 2019 they will be on site with us to oversee the packing of school supply kits.
This is where you come in!
In order to pack these school kits we need your help in supplying the materials. We are asking each group to bring at least one kit worth of materials with them to Kansas City ($12). Though you are welcomed and encouraged to bring more. Even if your group does not personally end up packing school kits your donation will go a long way in helping us give children around the world a chance to succeed in school.
Each kit should contain the following:
- 3 notebooks- 1 subject spiral 8” x 10 ½”
- 6 unsharpened pencils- no advertising
- 1 ruler 12” long – with metric
- 1 pencil eraser- 2” or larger
- 1 pencil sharpener
- 1 box of 12 colored pencils
- 1 box of 24 crayons
- 1 pair of student round tipped scissors
We can’t wait to serve with you in Kansas City!
