School Supply Drive for Africa

Grace's class and the rest of the Turtle team spent a month studying Africa so Dave made arrangements with a local school for Grace's class to "adopt" them and send school supplies to. Dave went to the school and met with the teachers and the students, took some pictures, and found out what all they needed. We shared the pictures with Grace's class and they collected a ton of school supplies to send over. I brought all the items home to box up and mail. Dave actually came home from Africa before they arrived but he had someone take pictures of everything being delivered to the school.

We sent:
23 backpacks
8 packs loose leaf paper
24 spiral notebooks
27 boxes of crayons
1 pack of colored pencils
25 paint sets
14 pairs of scissors
2 packs of erasers
17 boxes of chalk
29 packs of pencils
