School kits

School kits are MCC’s most-requested item. Notebooks and pencils become treasures to families who struggle
to afford basic school supplies. School kits also are given to refugee and displaced children, helping students and
teachers add some normalcy to disrupted lives. They are frequently requested after disasters. MCC sends school kits to places including Afghanistan, Jordan and Kenya.
