Broken Crayon Project

Broken Crayon Project

Come help us with our annual Broken Crayon Project! Every year, we put out a call to the island at the end of the school year to donate their used school supplies to this project. Because of our mission to serve the far-flung islands of Micronesia, we are able to send these school supplies to communities that need these supplies. We will need your help to collect, box, and prepare these donations for shipping. Learn about the island communities that we serve, and know why this project is needed and appreciated.
