CWS School Kits


During the month of August we are collecting basic school supplies for the Church World Service (CWS) School Kits. These school kits give children in impoverished schools, refugee camps, or other difficult settings some of the basic tools for learning. They are a key support for education that makes such a huge difference in a child’s life.

Items Needed:

  • One pair of blunt metal scissors (rounded tip)
  • Three 70-count spiral notebooks or notebooks totaling 200-210 pages(no loose-leaf or filler paper)
  • One 30-centimeter ruler (12″)
  • One hand-held pencil sharpener
  • One large eraser
  • Six new pencils with erasers
  • One box of 24 crayons (only 24)

In order to ensure that we have completed kits, the Witness Commission is asking that participants supporting this project purchase all of the items for one (or more) kit(s). Monetary donations are also welcome.

Call (703) 524-4100 or email acob[@]arlingtoncob.org for more information.
