Wishlist for Summer & Back to School

Items we most need for our summer program include:

-water based liquid paints or finger paints, large size bottles (1 liter) preferred, we almost always low on paints
 -letter size sheets for laminating machine
-printer cartridges:  HP 21 & 22 and Kodak 10B & 10C
-liquid white glue (like Elmer's), large bottles are great
-poster board (white and colors)
-brown packing tape
-double sided foam tape
-hula hoops
-colored foam sheets for art projects
-bug spray, preferably child friendly (low or no deet content), such as citronella based products
-book shelves, we need at least 2 sturdy metal ones for our Spanish collection and could use 1 for the English section
-a digital camera

Items we will need for the end of August to give out school supply packets to the kids:
-notebooks (lined and graph paper)
-crayons (in sets of 8 or 10 colors)
-colored pencils (in sets of 10 or 12 colors)
-erasers (the white ones are most favored by the kids)
-small bottles of white glue or glue sticks

 We are also in need of gently used clothing for our fundraising clothing bazaars. Things that sell well are light-to-medium weight clothing for babies, children, teens and small adults sizes (XS, S or M-- anything larger is generally too big for locals). Think summer or spring clothes. Sneakers, sandals, & flip-flops are also popular items. Please don't feel the need to go out and buy new clothes, pick stuff up at your local thrift store if you must, or canvas your neighbors for their used clothes-- help recycle clothing and help Hekab Be!
