Item collections for Honduras

Though we have finished our fundraising, we are still collecting items to take to the kids in Honduras. The Manuelito Project has a wishlist, most of which is listed below.

Items we can take down: 

School supplies (backpacks, notebooks, pencils, pens, erasers, pencil sharpeners, play-doh, markers, etc.) CRAYONS ARE NOT NEEDED

Quilts/blankets to keep warm (size single), bathroom towels

Clothes (underwear, socks, shirts, jeans, boxers, sweaters, etc)

Personal items (Soap, shampoo, tooth brush, large tubes of tooth paste, lotion, deodorant, perfume/cologne, pads (not tampons!), sunblock, bug repellant, etc.

Medicine (headaches, stomachaches, diarrhea, earaches, toothache, etc) Anything at all medical is extremely useful.

Small kitchen items - silverware, utensils

Baby Wipes


Items needed but require $$ donation (we cannot carry down, for example)
For tax receipts, make checks payable to FUMC or donate through WGM http://www.wgm.org/manuelito


School uniforms (pants, dress shirt, black shoes), uniforms for gym class. $50 covers all of the official school uniform. This needs to be purchased in Talanga.

20 mattresses for the work team building ($150 each)

Food (grain, milk, meat, bread, beans, etc). A shipping container of food would be amazing and extremely helpful.

20 seats for the dining hall, 35$ each. 2 tables for dining hall, $150 10.

Larger Kitchen items (pots, pans, industrial blender, strainer, pyrex, microwave, industrial coffee machine, mugs,etc)


To see donations at work, below is a photo of the new school building. In 2013, the VBS at FUMC raised enough money to help the project begin this building!
