Youth Contributions to Textbooks Africa

Youth Contributions to Textbooks Africa

Recently, Daniel Caracciolo, a student at Paul VI Catholic High School (PVI), helped collect, inventory, pack, and unload approximately ninety boxes of school supplies such as books and athletic apparel for children in Africa from PVI and St. Timothy’s (STS)! Additionally, he collected twenty-four basketballs, twenty-four soccer balls, ten lacrosse balls, and various uniforms for sports such as soccer and volleyball from PVI. Daniel also received eleven footballs with an air pump from a private donor. The PVI PTO and softball Southwestern Youth Association (SYA) donated approximately one hundred and sixty football jerseys. That is a great accomplishment, Daniel! Bibles and other Catholic books were also collected which will go to Catholic Schools in Africa.

We would also like to thank Mrs. Colwell, Mr. McLaughlin, Mrs. Carroll, and Mrs. Zanelotti for assisting Daniel to help gather donations for Textbooks Africa! This is a great example of youth leadership and uniting the members of the community with one goal: helping the children in Africa. The children are in dire need of these supplies, and they will be extremely grateful. The donations will help the children know that they are not alone. Through these supplies, the children will be equipped to be successful, both academically and athletically.

At Textbooks Africa, we encourage more youth leaders to take a stand, talk to their communities, and try help gather more supplies and money so we can reach even more children in Africa.
