Donated school supplies loaded on tables
School supplies are sorted and organized for packing

Every May, volunteers ask schools to allow us to collect discarded school supplies. Our public school students usually buy brand new every September, often discarding pens, rulers, unfinished notebooks, paper, school bags, crayons, felts, paint sets and brushes etc. School districts that need to discard old construction paper or newsprint, will find CFFC-BC a grateful recipient as this "new" paper is thankfully received in developing countries.

School supplies are packed in large boxes for shipping

A CFFC-BC volunteer and her husband "spent 6 weeks in India with a Carmelite Order. [They] stayed at a Home for boys ages 13,14, and 15. These boys come from very poor families and stay at the Home for 3 years. They go to school and come back to the Home for free boarding. They were so grateful to receive the school supplies and the T-shirts." (Excerpt from email from A Carino)
