Materials for South African schools
Members learned of an opportunity in South Africa, where Langa Township's schools had few books and supplies. Members worked with a local school and its students, collecting 170 pounds of books, 1,000 pens and pencils, and educational games. Langa Township was very grateful for these gifts.
