Bouquets of newly sharpened pencils

“I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.”
-Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) in You’ve Got Mail

There really is something about the smell of pencils, crayons and construction paper that can send one on a trip down memory lane to those first days of schools… the butterflies, the new clothes, the chance to start fresh. You can relive some of the good times by providing those fresh starts to the children and youth we serve at the Children’s Home! Below is a list of the items we most need as we anticipate the long days of summer nearing their end (and hopefully ushering in some cooler weather!). As you see school supplies filling the aisles and dropping in price, please think of us!

UPDATE: Please deliver all school supplies to UMCH by July 31, if at all possible.
