The students at Decatur Middle School in Indianapolis Indiana heard the stories of our children in Kenya and decided that they could do something to help. Ann Thomson, Decatur Middle school staff member, traveled to Kenya with Matanya’s Hope and shared stories, pictures and videos with the students to help open their eyes to poverty in a third world nation.
For each of the last two years, these students have dedicated themselves to collecting shoes, books and book bags, making fleece blankets and selling lollipops to raise money for the students of Kenya. The joy of giving has also touched Ann’s daughter who donated several new books and blankets.
Each June Matanya’s Hope takes over 65 fifty pound bags filled with such donations to the students and communities we help.
DECATUR MIDDLE SCHOOL – YOU ROCK!
Stay tuned for your donations meeting their new owners!
