Blue Mountain Project – Back2School Extravaganza 2011

Spread the love

There are a number of children in Hagley Gap who will not go to school this fall. They want to go to school but their parents cannot afford the needed supplies: backpacks, black shoes, pencils…
To help these families Blue Mountain Project holds the Back2School Extravaganza each August. And we need your help filling backpacks with school supplies for school kids.

Our deadline is 7-15-2011, which will enable us to get the supplies to Jamaica in time for the Extravaganza.  Our Fun Camp staff will be carrying the donations with them when they go to Hagley Gap.
