Compassion Club members put together 50 school kits to send to Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). Each kit contains four spiral notebooks, eight pencils, an eraser, ruler, and box of colored pencils. The MCC website states” notebooks and pencils are treasures for families who struggle to afford basic school supplies. School kits often are requested after disasters and help bring normalcy to children whose families have been forced to flee their homes. 70,652 kits were shipped last year to Jordan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Ethiopia, Iraq, North Korea, the U.S., Serbia and more.”
