Last year we received generous gifts that allowed us to provide pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, and more supplies – not only for students here at St John of Shanghai parish in Santa Maria, but also to children in five other Orthodox communities. We budgeted $350, and gratefully received gifts exceeding our budget — in the end, last year we spent about $500 to provide starter kits to every elementary and high school student in our mission communities. Thanks to your sponsorship, our kids were able to start the school year with all the supplies they needed.

This year we hope to do it again! Your gift to send students to school with everything they need will be a huge blessing to parents who struggle to send their children to school at all.
