Project

We partner with Sunsation Tours who in support of their literacy project ‘Tools for Schools’ that was started after Hurricane Ivan in 2004. In particular, their focus is on school libraries that were never lavishly stocked and which were stripped clean in the hurricane. There is a woeful lack of colourful, fun, motivating books for children from ages 5 through 12 years old.

An asterisk (*) before an item indicates this item is most urgently needed.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of November 9, 2019

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 take 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 taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
