As we head into 2024 we are preparing for the distribution of school supplies for the 2024-25 school year.   In the coming weeks we will begin assembling school packets for this year’s distribution which will take place in July 22 & 23.    Last year, we were able to provide backpacks and school supplies to over 800 students and we hope to do the same for the upcoming year.  In order to do so, we still need additional supplies.

Here is a list of items we need.   If you are coming to Cozumel in the coming months and are willing to put some supplies in your suitcase or backpack we are providing a description as well as links to Amazon’s site with some of the best prices we’ve found.  You can contact Larry Pedersen (PEDERSENLL@HOTMAIL.COM) or via phone (515) 249-9241.   We will make arrangements to meet you if you are visiting on a cruise or coming to vacation in Cozumel.
