School Supplies to Haiti - Thank You Midland, Michigan Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Endeavor to Develop Education recently received a shipment of school supplies sent from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There were two separate activities to generate and prepare the materials. These were distributed to school children just prior to the start of the upcoming school year. Below are pictures of some of the children being given the supplies. Some of the children dressed in their Sunday best for the event. Very exciting!

During the second event the area's Young Single Adults gathered new and lightly used school supplies.

Gwo Mesi (Big Thanks) to Rays of Hope in Grand Rapids for helping ship and move this material through customs.
