Christmas for Mexico: School Supply Backpacks and Toy

July 26, 2022

In the past, True Path Ministry Inc. gave hundreds of Christmas gift boxes to the children in the Galeana, NL, Mexico area. This year we will give a backpack, school supplies and one toy to each child. I know it seems a little early to talk about Christmas, but TPM needs help from our church and individual supporters. Plus, this is the best time to buy school supplies as tax-free weekend, in Texas is Friday Aug. 5 through Sunday Aug. 7.

Our partners in Mexico have worked with us to develop a list of supplies that best fits those needed in Mexican schools. We prefer givers follow the example we show for the supplies and backpack.

Total cost is about $22-26.00 for each backpack with supplies and gift. Items list (below list are photos and here are links to printable PDF files for Walmart and Dollar Tree with prices):

1.  15” Backpack (girl or boy color and other items to match gender color selected)
