**No food in care boxes. You can put candy but it must be a small amount**.
Easter, Birthday & Christmas Care Box information:
Three times a year, we give our supporters the opportunity to send Care Boxes to the children they sponsor at one of our four schools in Nicaragua. For about 95% of our students these are the only gifts they receive every year. They look forward to receiving the gifts from their sponsors the three times we ship containers to Nicaragua.
** Please Please do not put checks in the Care boxes!!
Below is the list of suggested items to put in your Care Box and how to properly label it:
(Cardboard or Plastic container) -- 12-18 qt. or 14"x7"x7", put your child's name and your name on the outside of the box so we can identify you and your child's box.
- School supplies-notebook, pens, pencils, glue, crayons
- Toy (age appropriate), stuffed animals, dolls, baseballs, cars
