The main event of August for our organization was the volunteer action “Pack a schoolbag for a child”, which lasted from August 10 till September 5, 2018.
Two years ago, volunteers of our city initiated this campaign in our community in order to help children from low-income and large families.
This year the action has become All-Ukrainian and it is supported by 13 cities. 42 volunteers and 5 partner organizations took part in our campaign. We provided targeted assistance to 2 families for the purchase of school uniforms and shoes; 52 children received school supplies as a gift.
As the result of our action there were bought:
13 backpacks, 8 bags for a second pair of shoes, 695 notebooks, 49 albums, 50 diaries, 45 sets of colored paper, 53 sets of colored pencils, 7 notebook folders, 39 pencil cases, 25 packs of notebook covers, 1 pack of book covers, 15 sets of markers, 35 sets of watercolor paints, 46 tubes of glue, 53 rulers, 33 sharpeners, 8 plasticine packs, 37 erasers, 25 copybooks, 10 English dictionaries, 45 coloring books, 15 manuals, 88 pencils, 412 pens, 5 packs of marker pens, 8 pair of scissors, 6 brush sets, 2 gouache paint sets, 5 sets of colored pencils 40 pieces each, 15 sets of colored cardboard, 6 notebooks, 6 non-spill cups.
