Hi All, my wife and I will be in San Pedro in a few weeks. Today we went and picked up a whole bunch of pencils, pens, erasers, toothbrush`s, pencil sharpeners, coloring pencils and would like to know who we should give these to..is there anything else we could add in the package? Thanx..LaGrange

Thanks for doing this. It certainly helps.
As to who to give them to, there are several needy groups. Holy Cross School being at the top of the list in my opinion. Check out their blog at http://www.holycrossbelize.blogspot.com/
Also, the library or the public school (near the library) are two others who would appreciate your donations. Do a search under Library or elementary school. Belizegial who posts on here, and who lives on the mainland also appreciates donations.
No shortage of who to donate to.

We just got back from AC. We had some friends who went to the Catholic school while we were there and they asked them if they needed any supplies? They said they had a printer but no cartridge. Our friends went to the stationary school in SP and actually found a cartridge!!

The school also said, I know this is an odd request, that they need those small plastic eggs that can be taken apart in the middle. I guess they fill them with...whatever? I figure with Easter coming they need these. Contact them before going.

I saw the kids playing soccer outside with a pretty old soccer ball, would never hurt bringing one along with you.



Good on you guys!!

There is one library other than individual school libraries and that is the public library. We have quite a few children's programs and always need supplies. We also love to get book donations for both adults and children. Thanks

I think it's great that everyone is so generous! Keep up the good work. These children will benefit greatly from all the generosity. We will goiung back to AC in June and plan on bringing supplies to SAGA and to Holy Cross. Does anyone know wher we can drop off the supplies if Holy Cross is closed for the summer. Thanx and again Keep up the good work. Tara

Easiest and best bet is to drop off at Pampered Paws on Middle Street just north of the RC School. They're open from 8-12, 1-7 M-F and 8-12, 1-5 on Sat. Kathy is on the board and would be more than happy to help out.

We especially need books for school age kids, fiction and science. We have zoo books but need other youth reference material. Thanks so much

My daughter and I have begun buying stuff for Holy Cross school also. I am trying to think light weight. So Stickers,paper, folders and holiday decor is what I am aiming for.
