School kits for the children of Greece

Can you imagine going to school without a pencil or a notebook? Many school children in Greece are unable to fully participate in their studies in school due to the need for basic school supplies. To fill this need, International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) has asked our Youth to provide the necessary supplies for the children. The Youth of Holy Trinity's Catechetical School, Greek School and Holy Trinity Academy have set a goal to prepare 250 school kits. The project began on Sunday, January 28th, and continues.

List of Needed Supplies:

  • One pair of blunt metal scissors (round tip)
  • Three 70 count spiral or tape-bound notebooks of 8”x10 1/2 ” ruled paper totaling 200-210 sheets. Please do not provide loose-leaf or filler paper.
  • One 30 centimeter ruler (12”)
  • One hand held pencil sharpener
  • Six new pencils with erasers
  • One large eraser, 2 1/2 ”
  • One box of 24 crayons (only 24)

Boxes marked IOCC School Kits are in the hallway of the Community Center. Please have your student(s) drop their finished kits into one of the boxes.

Your donation can give a less fortunate child the tools needed to do well in school!
