School Supplies for Costa Rican Students

Do you remember what it was like on your first day of school? The excitement of seeing your friends, meeting your new teachers and--best of all--new books and school supplies!

We need your help.

We are hosting a school supply drive collecting pens, pencils, crayons, markers, notebooks, books, and/or any school supply you can think of, for the students of Costa Rica. We are looking for any gently used books for any age category, especially picture books for young children and chapter books for middle-school aged students.

We will be giving these school supplies directly to the students of Costa Rica while on Alternative Spring Break. We would sincerely appreciate any help that you can offer us. There is a box on the service desk in the Henry Student Center where donations can be made. You may also contact Elizabeth Bracco at elizabeth.bracco@wilkes.edu or Jimmy Steigerwalt at james.steigerwalt@wilkes.edu with any questions about donation information.

Thank you!
