2023 Giving Tuesday

2nd annual school backpack drive

Goal: $7,500

Last year’s Giving Tuesday was such a success that we have decided to do it again this year, our 2nd Annual School Backpack Drive! It is a special fundraiser that empowers you to provide much needed school supplies for children currently living in extreme poverty. Many can’t go to school because their parents can’t afford the required basic school supplies. In Guatemala, school starts in February and our goal is to raise enough for 300 backpacks stuffed with school supplies by the beginning of the school year!

For $25 each, this is what each student will receive:

  • Good quality backpack that will last.
  •  #2 pencils
  • Eraser
  • Black, blue and red ink pens
  • Scissors
  • 12 colored pencils
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Pencil bag
  • 12 crayons
  • 12 colored markers
  • Paint brush
  • 6 color water paint set
  • Bottle of white glue
  • Ruler
  • 5 notebooks
  • Loose leaf notebook paper
  • graph paper
  • blank paper
  • Kid’s New Testament
  • Evangelistic story booklet
