SCBWI to Donate Comfort Kits
The SCBWI will be assembling Comfort Kits for children who have been displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Each kit will contain:
1 Toothbrush & Toothpaste Set
1 NEW Toy or Stuffed Animal
Kits for children ages 3 to 8 will have picture books (hard or soft cover) and a small stuffed animal. Kits for children ages 8 to 12 will have chapter books/novels (hard or soft cover) and an age- appropriate non-electronic toy (marbles, jacks, puzzles, action figures, etc.).
If you would like to contribute, we are asking SCBWI members to donate new or like-new books (hard or soft cover) and NEW toys or stuffed animals. The SCBWI will provide the tote bags, toothbrush sets, and flashlights. The SCBWI Executive Office staff will assemble the kits and see that they are distributed to Hurricane Katrina relief shelters around the country.
This is a concrete way that you can help children through your membership and our organization. Send items to arrive BEFORE September 25th to:
SCBWI Hurricane Help
8271 Beverly Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90048
If you would rather contribute money, please make a check out to "SCBWI Katrina Relief Fund" and mail to the address above -- we will use it to purchase the necessary items. A $15 donation will sponsor one Comfort Kit.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity. Together we can make an amazing difference in the lives of these children.
Please spread this information to your SCBWI friends who don't participate on the Boards and to non-SCBWI members who might be interested in donating books or toys.
