School Supplies Drive for Chinmaya Vijaya Orphanage!
Chinmaya Vijaya is an orphanage located in Vijayawada, India committed to caring for 115 orphaned girls from across the country. At the orphanage, the girls have everything provided for them including all food, clothes, school supplies, and other necessities.
Growing up going to the orphanage every other summer, I've grown super close to all the girls and have enjoyed every minute spent with them.
Due to Covid, we wanted to make their transition back to school as easy as possible. This meant getting them any supplies they may need for school in advance so they wouldn't have to worry about it when they returned.
In total, we raised over $400 and were able to purchase enough school supplies to make 150 school supply kits for the girls! Each kit includes two pencils, two pens, two erasers, a pencil sharpener, and a mask.
The kits are currently in-transit and will arrive at the orphanage shortly! We're so grateful for everyone who donated and supported this drive.
Stay tuned for our next event!
