Black Sheep Inn

Project #1

Black Sheep Inn created a Public/Library Computer Learning Center in the town of Chugchilan.

The library is meant to help bridge that gap by giving free access to information.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of January 27, 2020

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.
