Collecting Supplies for Africa

One of Conestoga’s former students, Laura Beck, is collecting gently used backpacks and school supplies for the children of Bopolu, Liberia, Africa. Bopolu is a very poor village and is need of many things that we take for granted, like roads, water, electricity and housing. The newly built Eric Scott School is satisfying a great need by educating the children of Bopolu, Liberia. You can help the children with any small donation. Below is a list of items needed.

  • used backpacks
  • used clothing (shirts/T-shirts/pants/shorts/sneakers/shoes/sandals/socks)
  • New underwear
  • school supplies (composition books, colored paper, notebook paper, but not spiraled)
  • bars of soap/liquid soap/shampoo/conditioner/toothpaste
  • plastic ziplock bags (all sizes)
  • bandaids

Thank you for considering a small donation, which can be sent in with your child. There is a collection box in the lobby area.
