White Shirts Needed for School Children
September 9, 2014 -- originally posted April 16, 2001
There is still a tremendous need for white shirts for the Guatemalan school children. As many people already know, Guatemalan children are required to wear white shirts as part of their school uniform. Most people only have one white shirt and owning two is a luxury. So we're pulling together to help fill this need as we gather to collect shirts and send them with those headed for Guatemala and other countries in Central and South America. It is a constant need for those not only in Guatemala, but El Salvador and the rest of Central and South America.
Everyone should just be aware to be on the lookout for white shirts that their children outgrow, at thrift shops, garage sales, neighbors etc. These shirts will be collected throughout the year and then at certain times, when someone is traveling to South America, we can send down a suitcase or two of shirts. If you want to volunteer for this, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you will be one of the coordinators. Thanks to everyone for helping make a difference in the lives of others.
