School Kit Assembly & Shipping Instructions

In some countries, children don't have books or school supplies. Many have no schoolrooms; classes are held in inadequate or half-destroyed buildings, tents, or even the open air. School kits may be these children's only educational resources.

Important Kit Assembly Information

  • All items included in kits must be NEW items. 
  • All emergency kits are carefully planned to make them usable in the greatest number of situations. Since strict rules often govern product entry into international countries, it is important that kits contain only the requested items-nothing more.
  • Do NOT include any personal notes, money or additional materials in the kits. These things must be painstakingly removed and will delay the shipment.

 Packing Kits

  • Box Weight. Each packed box cannot exceed 66 pounds.

Shipping Kits

  1. Complete 2 packing lists-one for your records and one to put on the shipping box.
  2. Paste the shipping label / packing list on the outside of each box you send. The shipping list helps the depot to quickly process kits.
