Help us shop/donate the weekly specials on school supplies! Invite your friends, neighbors, family or work colleagues to grab their spare change and make a stop or two during the week . . . the more we can add to our army of shoppers, the more children we can help continue their education. The supplies we are buying now will be for next school year, August 2011!

Friends of Cozumel volunteers from Iowa, Nebraska, Texas; Mission Trip participants, and the SAIL cruise group transport items to the island. Questions? Email karen@friendsofcozumel.com

Last night we finished distributing backpacks filled with school supplies to 75 children from families with very limited resources. The children and parents are soooooo appreciative! Click here to read more about the School Supplies Project
