School Supplies for Guatemalan Families

Donate School Supplies to Guatemalan Families

Saint Joan of Arc partners with Common Hope, a non-profit organization that improves the lives of Guatemalan children and families through education, housing and health care. 

In 2015, we will collect donations of school supplies.  Common Hope will transport all the supplies to Guatemala and distribute the products free of charge to those in need. All supplies must be new.
