Four weeks of dedicated labor by KKIS (Keeping Kids in School) volunteers in Playa del Carmen, Mexico: sorting school supplies, packing KKIS bags with appropriate supplies for each grade level, stacking bags into plastic vegetable crates and storing them next door in our neighbor’s living room, loading trucks twice daily for deliveries and finally placing a KKIS bag of school supplies into the hands of 2,922 students has been accomplished.
Thomas Cook Children’s Charity, Simca Desarrollos, and the Youth Connection each adopted schools and donated financially for KKIS to purchase the needed school supplies.
Thanks to all volunteers and sponsors these children in Playa have hopes for a brighter future. At our final delivery on Friday, Aug. 25, students ran to the front gate of Gregoria Cob Cob elementary school as volunteers were loading empty crates into trucks and delivered thank you notes drawn with their brand new colored pencils.
Now more and more photos of the process.
