Our Dear Supporter:
We hope you and your family are doing well and staying safe at home!
Normally, our campaign for collecting gently used and new school supplies begins in April and continues throughout May prior to schools starting closure for summer vacation.
Due to early closing of schools as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have put on hold our school supplies collection drive until schools reopen. We are saddened that we will not be able to collect and ship to those students who desperately need school supplies. We will notify you when we resume our campaign.
UniKids-Recycle School Supplies
Each year, we contact schools, parents, teachers, individuals, and organizations to help us collect gently used and new school supplies. At the end of school year, participating schools donate all their used and unused school supplies. We go to the schools to collect these school supplies.
In a given year, we collect 3,000 – 5,000 lbs. of school supplies. We select recipient organizations in 2-3 developing countries with an approximate of 6,000 students to be helped collectively.
We ask that you donate any amount to help us ship/donate these school supplies to students in need. No amount is SMALL.
Thank you so much for your support.In the meantime, we want to let you know that we have few boxes of supplies ready to ship to one of our recipients. We would like to add to these collections before shipping; therefore, if you have school supplies or you are aware of anyone or any company that might have supplies to donate, please let me know and we will arrange pickup or provide drop off location. We will gladly accept your donations while keeping social distancing.We remain hopeful that the situation improves quickly and send our love during this difficult time. We thank you for your support throughout the past years.
