Recalling the 1st Annual School Supply Distribution

The effort was minute, unplanned, and not in our budget. The school season was starting soon and for many students school supplies were hard to access. I remember being excited at the beginning of each school season because we could shop for school supplies.

My roommate and I walked into a store in a search for food one day and instead saw the endless shelves of Back-to-school sales. By sheer serendipity, this fond memory became a flurry of action and thought. We grabbed two carts full of school supplies. We counted and then counted again to make sure we had 20 of everything. We focused on supplies they could use. Our promotora in Ensenada said there was a greater need.  We had little more self-funding that was free so we pushed it to 40-60  students.

We purchased pencil boxes, crayons, notebooks, and pencils. We boxed the crayons and pencils into the pencil cases. We brought it across the border and we delivered it on our August clinic trip. We took pictures for posterity and we wrote their names and ages down for DIF (Desarollo Integral Familia). Their ages ranged from 5 to 15 years of age. Their joy and appreciation shine through in the pictures. I could not have found a better use of our time and resources.


Perhaps next year, with the proper funding and planning we can reach more people in the community. Until then, be thankful and humble for all your possessions and resources.
