Mayan Families School Supply Drive

When you’re at Broad Street this weekend, be sure to get an extra set of pencils! Siri “Ray of Sunshine” Carr ’15 has the details:

WesIntepreters is stepping out of our normal role in helping our   
local community to help our global one, too! Starting today
(Wednesday, 1/21) through Friday, February 13th we will be collecting
school supplies in a donation box at Broad Street Books to donate to
Mayan Families, a non-profit located in rural Guatemala that supports
the Maya people of Lake Atitlan and the surrounding areas. Check them
out here: https://www.mayanfamilies.org/page/sendsupplies.

Later this semester we will be screening a documentary called “Living
on One Dollar” about four college kids who go to Guatemala to learn
what it is like to live below the poverty line and who have now
partnered with Mayan Families, so keep your eyes open for that!

But for now, the donation box will be at Broad Street Books for the
beginning of the semester so you can buy an extra set of pencils (for
example) to donate as you stock up on your own books and supplies for
the semester!

Date: Now until February 13

Place: Broad Street Books
