School Supply kits

Goal: 1,000 kits

Service Project: School Supply Kits

School kits are essential for children returning to school, and most newly arrived refugees may have interrupted schooling histories or uneven access to supplies due to forced displacement and immigration. School kits contain the bare essentials for children returning to school in the fall, things like pencils, notebooks, and a backpack. Our goal is to assemble 1000 kits on the day of service, but before we can assemble kits we are looking for donations for kit components. We have a link on the website that will link you to a donation list of physical items, or on The Oliver Fund website there is a donate button to which your funds can purchase the necessary supplies.

Volunteers will assemble school supply kits for local and international refugees. Supplies will be on hand for the kits. You can also donate some of the supplies, including:

  • Notebooks
  • Packs of Pencils
  • Erasers
  • Packs of Pens
  • Children’s Scissors
  • Crayons

Bring any of the supplies with you on July 15 or purchase them here.

About The Oliver Fund

The Oliver Fund honors the possibilities and potential for children’s lives by supporting children around the world in simple ways.  Created in memory of one child whose life was short, the mission of the Oliver Fund is to incorporate elements of essential childhood into the lives of children through education and play. Over the last 10 years the organization has impacted children lives globally in underserved refugee camps and the developing world, including Lebanon, Jordan, Pakistan, Greece, Ghana, Kenya, Philippines, Guatemala, Mexico, and Puerto Rico.
The school kits assembled as the Canyon Rim Day of Service will support the children of the Ukrainian conflict in the active war zone and in relocation sites, as well as benefit a number of refugee children right here in Utah.
