School Kit Assembly & Shipping Instructions

In some countries, children don't have books or school supplies. Many have no schoolrooms; classes are held in inadequate or half-destroyed buildings, tents, or even the open air. School kits may be these children's only educational resources.

Assembly Directions

Place all loose items on top of paper. Turn items sideways and slide into the cloth bag. Fold over the top of the bag so loose items don’t fall out.

 Important Notes

‐ A pattern for the bag can be found on the internet at Go to “How To Give” at the top of the page and scroll down to “Relief Supplies”. Click on “Relief Supplies” and scroll down until you find the “School Kit” section. Click on “sewing patterns”.
‐ All items must be new.
‐ All emergency kits are carefully planned to make them usable in the greatest number of situations. Since strict rules often govern product entry into international countries, it is important that kits contain only the requested items – nothing more.
‐ DO NOT include any personal notes, money or additional material in the kits. These things must be painstakingly removed and will delay the shipment.
