Monday KKIS volunteers began packing pencil cases with school supplies for the children of Playa del Carmen. Several of the KKIS high school scholarship students joined us, as did employees of Thomas Cook. They were energetic and managed to pack almost 2,000 pencil cases in one day!
The Thomas Cook Children’s Charity gave KKIS a grant earlier this year that will provide school supplies for every child in two schools located in the Nicte Ha neighborhood.
Packing will continue everyday for the next two weeks and culminate in delivery to six schools, almost 3,000 students, the week of Aug. 22 – 25.
