We keep getting asked what kind of school supplies we need. If you are in Playa, please buy a backpack and put some school supplies in it like: scissors, 24pks of colored pencils, 4 G USBs, pencil cases, pens in blue, black and red, glue sticks, rulers, pencil sharpeners, white erasers, etc. If you will be visiting Playa and would like to bring some items from home, here is the easiest thing to do: buy a backpack and fill it with these items which are light weight and easy to pack. If the backpack doesn’t fit in your suitcase, please wear it!
School supplies are incredibly expensive here in Playa for what these families make in income…anything you can bring will be used.
If you won’t be here in Playa del Carmen in the future, please consider making a donation here on our web page using the email firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact us if you have further questions.
