Vinland’s project for school children in India ongoing

Kristin Mann traveled to India over the summer and spent time in the Amar Jyoti Elementary School in Bhadrajun, India. Mann's students are learning about India and as a project for the class, they're collecting items to send to the school children. They're collecting new school supplies: pens, pencils and sharpeners, crayons or markers, writing pads or paper, solar calculators, and small books. As a treat, they're also sending hard candy and lollipops, mints, and gum. They'd also like to collect necessities for cold weather: socks, mittens, and caps. If a family wishes to donate money, there is a container in the classroom so students and/or families can donate money by placing it inside. They'll then mark the money to be used to buy sweaters and school uniforms in India, as those items will be much cheaper to purchase there. Donations may be dropped off at Mann’s classroom. The fundraiser goes through Nov. 26. For more information, call (360) 779-8890.
