Making an Impact in the World Can Be as Easy as Going to the Grocery Store

GV students working at the Obras Sociales del Hermano Pedro hospital need medical supplies to give to their patients.

The 2011 Spring Trip students are participating in their annual Supply Drive and they need your help!

They are gathering medical, school and office supplies to take with them to Guatemala to give to local schools, hospitals and organizations. It is a great way for Global Visionaries to “share the wealth” with our partners in Guatemala who have fewer resources than we do.

If you would like to donate items toward this cause, please give GV Program Manager Reagan Jackson a phone call at (206) 322-9448 or e-mail her at reaganjackson@global-visionaries.org.

The deadline to donate items is March 31, 2011. Don’t miss out!

All the items we gather will go to the Global Visionaries office in Antigua, Escuela Cerro de Niño, Escuela Segunda Cruz, hospitals in Antigua, and other organizations, clinics, and schools.

What Can I Donate?

If it’s hygienic, can be used in a school, hospital, or office, we’ll take it! For more detailed information, please refer to the Common Hope website for specifics.
