The Church of the Nazarene operates numerous primary schools around the world, providing quality education for children. Unfortunately, children around the world often do not have the supplies needed for school. In countries with economic challenges, families cannot afford to purchase supplies, or siblings are often required to share the supplies. In response to the need, Nazarene Missions International partnered with Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, Inc. (NCM, Inc.) to provide School Pal-Paks.  Each School Pal-Pak, contained in a 1-gallon Ziploc type bag, serves 2 students and contains the following items:

  • 1 package of 10-12 #2 pencils***
  • 1 package of 10-12 black pens***
  • 1 package of 12-15 colored pencils ***
  • 1 pair blunt-nosed scissors  ***
  • 1 hand-held pencil sharpener (NOT electric or battery-powered)
  • 2 composition notebooks (soft bound, NOT spiral bound)
  • 2 6-inch or 12-inch rulers (with metric measurements)
  • 2 pink erasers, 2-3 inches long
Please bring the items to church and place in the basket in the main hallway. Any money placed in the offering, marked “School Pal-Paks”, will be used to purchase supplies or pay for the $10 per box shipping and handling. Please see Christi Cummings if you have any questions.
