Donate or Collect School (and Office) Supplies
Thank you for your interest in The Pencil Project where we can give education a chance one pencil at a time. We are currently at 1,000 pencils and counting. Help make our numbers grow.
Children in Liberia are in dire need of school supplies. The average classroom lacks the basic essential school supplies to provide a meaningful educational experience for kids.
Relief Inc. has responded to this need and is facilitating the donation of school supplies to needy and deserving schools.
Donate: If you already have school and office supplies that you do not need (regardless of the quantity), please send them to us. We welcome new and gently used supplies of all types.
Collect: You can also collect and send us school supplies. We appreciate your desire to help.
