Notebooks for Haiti

February 22, 2018 General Comments Off on Notebooks for Haiti Posted By: Todd Martin

Colleagues,

I’m joining a group of students for a spring break mission trip to Haiti this year where we’ll be teaching English to both elementary students and college students. One of the main needs indicated was basic black and white composition notebooks for the students: Mead Composition Book / Notebook, Wide Ruled Paper, 100 Sheets, 9-3/4″ x 7-1/2″. These are relatively inexpensive, and you can purchase a single notebook on Amazon as an “add on item” for about $3, or you can get them in packs of 6 ($14) or 12 ($24) dollars. You can probably just pick them up at WalMart, too.

If you are interested in helping us collect these items to take to Haiti, you can just bring them by my office, Loew-Brenn 286.
