Annual School Kit DriveSchool girls receiving school kits


We were able to create 113 complete school kits between the supply and cash donations, with an additional $160 leftover to donate directly to the Mennonite Central Committee!

We so appreciate you for helping us collect more kits than 2020!


In August of 2020, Global Heart collected 47 complete kits and $500 in partnership with the Mennonite Central Committee! MCC is a nonprofit relief organization who added them to thousands of other kits and shipped them to under privileged children around the world.


School supplies can make all the difference in a child’s future. The school kits are distributed in orphanages, children's shelters, schools for disabled children and refugee camps. 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. Global Heart is collecting the school kits now through August 28th. (Please note we will be closed August 29th through September 3rd)


Each school kit consists of a drawstring bag filled with specific supplies. People who want to help can get empty bags at Global Heart, fill them and return them or simply take the supplies to the store.

Each kit must contain:

four spiral notebooks 8.5” x 10.5” 70-80 pages each

eight unsharpened #2 pencils

one 12” flexible plastic ruler with inch and metric scales

one large pencil eraser

one box of 12 colored pencils (no crayons please, they melt)

two new black or blue ballpoint pens

and one small metal pencil sharpener (one or two holes), plastic free. Please do not include plastic sharpeners, as they do not last long enough to be worthwhile. If you cannot find a metal sharpener leave that item out.


All kits must have the same contents so when they are distributed; each child gets the same things. Please limit your generosity of supplies to the items listed above, we do not have the capacity to accept more. We do also very happily accept cash or check donations!


School kits, supplies or cash donations should be dropped off at Global Heart by Saturday August 28th, during store hours.

Our store is located on the Plaza, 423 First St West.

We are open 10-5 weekdays, 10-5 weekends, closed on Wednesdays.
