April 2014 – Mohawk ECE Walk-a-thon

On March 26, Early Childhood Education students at MohawkCollege held their second annual Walk-a-thon. With pledges from friends and family and sharing the reality of education in Nicaragua, they were able to raise $881 for SchoolBOX’s Supplies 4 Success program. This means that 176 children and teachers will now have the supplies they need to go to school this year.

Organizers Eda and Dave are leading their classmates in showing how simple acts can make a huge difference.  Back in January, they hosted a lunch and learn with Executive Director Sarah Kerr to tell the SchoolBOX story to the ECE class.  We are so thankful to Mohawk ECE for sharing SchoolBOX’s mission and ‘Making Education Possible’ for so many kids in Nicaragua.
