This summer we get to help ESTHERS collect school supplies and backpacks to distribute in Brazil. We will be collecting the supplies at Wiley Elementary starting Sunday, 8/20, 8/27, 9/3 & 9/10.

Their goal is to distribute at least 200 backpacks to the girls at ESTHERS, their brothers, and other children in the community they serve each year through community outreach. Sales have started already at stores like Staples, Office Depot and Target so start stocking up! Please consider filling a backpack for one of the children in Brazil with the items listed below or getting some of the supplies listed. Questions?
