We know that you and your wife are able to distribute needed eye glasses and school supplies to those who need them. We arrive in November. Are there supplies which you would recommend bringing?

This list on the page linked below is from a couple of years ago, but I doubt there have been any changes of consequence. I can't find the current year's list. I prefer to BUY AMERICAN meaning things made anywhere from Tierra del Fuego to the Northern Territories (and NOT China). If you don't feel like carrying supplies with you then you can buy them here or leave money to buy things with Lupita and she'll get what she know the kids need.

We buy the supplies while we are down there. There is a little shop right beside the school near the museum, not far from Rob's shop. There has always been a really helpful person behind the counter and we have been lucky enough that a young student usually shows up to help us. It really does turn into a lot of fun. Also, if you search the archives.... I got a list of supplies that Rob sent Grumpy from Cowichan....I think. I hope you have a great trip.

We go to that school supply store in the alley behind the school every year and show them the list and they put any packages you want together. You can have a drink at any of the restaurants on the beach at Playa Principal while they put it together and then head back and pick it up. Then take a short stroll to Lupitas and drop it off. Couldn’t be any easier and everyone wins.
