School Supplies for Afghan Children

Pile of School Supplies

Thanks to employees of Twin Cities Public Television and GovDelivery I filled four boxes with school supplies

Over 60 notebooks, 760 pens and pencils and a variety of other school supply essentials were donated by the employees of Twin Cities Public Television and GovDelivery. In addition to the supplies enough money was donated to help defray all of the shipping costs.

School Supplies for Afghan Children, a non-profit based out of Tampa has given me the name and address of a soldier in northern Afghanistan. I will send the boxes to him and he will distribute them to schools and children he encounters as part of his daily activities.

It’s humbling to think how much a pen, pencil and notebook means to a child who is ready to learn. Thanks to all who donated.
