Project #1

Holy Family Hopkins School is located in Hopkins Village and serves 300 children from ages 3 through 12 years old.

Thanks to the generosity of our guests who "pack for a purpose", we are able to provide any supplies beyond what the school requires to other community projects throughout the year, such as the Kite Festival and Hopkins Day Fair.

We also collect children's books that we donate to Miss Bertie's Hopkins Community Library that is also situated in Hopkins Village.

All the needs are current as of October 22, 2014
Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you bring for them.
Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of bringing candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
