Back to school: Fall 2010 wishlist

Below are items we are hoping to receive in the next month so that we can support local families by giving school supplies to the kids.

Note that items on the list below are still needed as well!

Our assistant director, Carlos, speaks English and can answer any questions you have. Please do not hesitate to leave your donation with either Carlos or Leo, our director, whether it's a donation in kind or a cash donation. They will ask you to sign our guest book with your name, address and a description of what you donated.

Any of these supplies can be purchased locally in Playa del Carmen at any of the large supermarkets, superstores or office supply stores such as Sam's, Cityclub, Walmart, Mega, Chedraui, or Office Depot/Max.
