Recycling Pens and Pencils
My sister in law Jen is a teacher in Canada. A few months ago, we were talking about the large expense that school supplies are for many of the families we work with. Jen is head of her schools enviromental group and she came up with a great idea to recycle her students school supplies at the end of the school year. With the help of the kids and families from her school, they collected enough supplies to fill 40 pencil cases with pens, pencils, pencil crayons and more. They also brought reusable lunch bags. Today we went to visit with some of the families from our care center ministry. It was a lot of fun to see the kids faces light up when they opened their pencil cases and saw all the goodies inside. Here are a few pictures from our visits.
