We are excited to announce our 2024 Book Brigade to Mexico aimed at supporting the local children in Costa Maya and enhancing their educational experiences. This drive is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to come together and contribute to the success and well-being of the children. We are seeking donations of the following items:

Books in English and Spanish

Books are a gateway to knowledge and imagination. We are looking for a variety of books suitable for children and young adults in both English and Spanish. Whether it’s new or gently used, your contribution can help build a library that fosters a love for reading and learning among our students.

School Supplies

Essential school supplies such as notebooks, pens, pencils, erasers, rulers, crayons, markers, folders, and backpacks are always in high demand. These supplies ensure that every student is equipped to participate fully in their education, regardless of their financial situation.

Children's Shoes

Proper footwear is crucial for the comfort and health of our children. We are accepting donations of new or gently used children’s shoes in all sizes. A good pair of shoes can make a significant difference in a child’s day-to-day activities and overall well-being.

Sporting Goods

Physical activity is essential for the development of young minds and bodies. We are seeking donations of sporting goods, including but not limited to soccer balls, basketballs, and footballs. Please deflate to save room. Your contributions will help us encourage a healthy, active lifestyle among our students.

Bring your boxes to District Roundtable at Dallas College-Brookhaven Campus on August 10th & September 14th with an inventory of each box attached to the box (no need to list book titles; just list the item name and # of each item in the box). October 1st is our deadline for receiving boxes & completing the manifest for the donations to be submitted to customs.

Contact District International Service Chair Jerrica Anderson McAnally at Jerrica.Anderson@hotmail.com or (214)385-8559 for more details.
