Montessori School of Denver Supports Project C.U.R.E.
Montessori School of Denver is excited to announce our spring Service Learning project for 2010! This year, we are partnering with Full Circle, a group of MSD Parents creating a school-based model of philanthropy where students and families connect with communities around the world to see their giving come full circle. Full Circle and MSD are collaborating with Project C.U.R.E., a Denver-based non-profit and the world’s largest distributor of donated medical supplies to the developing world.
Working together MSD families will create C.U.R.E. Kits for Kids, shoebox-sized kits packed with everyday medical supplies, such as band-aids, pain reliever, and burn lotion. The kits can be filled for about $10 at the dollar store (depending upon which items you purchase), plus $5 for shipping costs. Completed kits will be distributed to families in Belize who live on about $1/day and can’t afford the most basic medical care. What an exciting way to get your family together and learn about poverty, medical supplies, service to others, and generosity!
MSD has committed to filling 200 C.U.R.E. Kits this spring. The collected kits will be delivered to the Project C.U.R.E. warehouse in preparation for shipment. The Full Circle team will travel to Belize in the fall to deliver the kits directly to the families in need creating a video documentary of the entire process! Upon their return from Belize, we will present the video for all families and students so they can see how their donations came full circle!
