School supplies for Belize City

Posted by Dana Hinton

August 23, 2022

Because of the Covid pandemic, many families without jobs struggle to keep up with the basic necessities for survival. The Sisters felt a need to assist these families in preparing for back to school by helping with school supplies. They reached out and collaborated with Fr. David and Marilyn Garvin at St. Martin’s De Porres parish on Southside Belize City to donate school supplies, including bag packs, books, pencils, pens, crayons, markers, erasers, etc. This donation will be used to assist 20 + students in preparing for the beginning of school.
