Even before we break ground on our first Merkabah Empowerment Academy in Haiti, we have challenged friends and colleagues to share vital school supplies for local children in need.
On November 16, Merkabah enlisted the help of Florida high school students, their parents, teachers, and friends, and alumni of Emory University in Atlanta. In just a few short hours, participants gathered 500 individual school supplies for distribution to children in classrooms in Haiti. Read more about this project here.
During the fundraising process for the Merkabah Empowerment Academy, we will continue to gather much-needed school supplies to share with rural Haitian schools. If your corporation or school would like to donate, please consider the following items:
- Writing utensils – pencils, pens, markers
- White boards and dry erase markers
- Construction paper
- Classroom scissors
- Watercolor paints
We hope that you will clean out your office closets, declutter your storage rooms, and consider sharing unused office and school supplies with Merkabah International Foundation. Your simple act of kindness will enrich the lives of Haitian students in myriad ways.
Merkabah is thankful for the generous support of these organizations:
