655 Pencils & More for Africa

Two suitcases filled with school supplies for children in Africa have been packed up and sent to Honolulu today.

Hilo Zontians bought or collected:
655 pencils
28 packs colored markers
23 rules/protractors
45 pens
230 erasers
4 boxes colored pencils
paperclips
65 boxes crayons

They will be delivered to Nancy Pace, MD, who spoke to our Club in June.  Nancy does medical mission and other work in various world tough spots.  She said for some of the children, it will be their very first pencil.  We will keep you posted on  details of exactly where the supplies go in Africa.
