Children’s Hope Fund coordinated the collection and shipment of donations which were received in Bacoor, Cavite on August 05, 2010. The shipment included backpacks, pens, pencils, notebook, crayons, eraser, used children’s books, shoes, clothing, educational games and other miscellaneous items. Can you imagine how thankful, excited and happy these children were when they saw all that had been sent? I was told by one of our volunteers that English reading books are very rare and all the kids in the neighborhood were excited when they heard that the boxes had arrived – it’s like Christmas in August!

The donated clothing and other miscellaneous items will be distributed to the recent fire and typhoon victims in Bacoor, Cavite. The books, puzzles and other miscellaneous educational items will go to Bacoor Elementary School. CHF volunteers and the Barangay representatives will coordinate the distribution of the donated items.

If you have any books, children’s clothes, children’s shoes that are taking up too much space? Why not put them to good use in the Philippines? We will continue to collect donations and plan on sending more to the Philippines by the end of the year.

We want to thank everyone who has sent donations to help these kids.
