DEStorage.com, a leading provider of self – storage throughout the State of Delaware, hosted a school supply drive and fundraiser in collaboration with the Ears to Hear ministries (501c3) to benefit a primary school in Batey Central in the Dominican Republic with 185 students in all grade levels.
The students are not only given a hot meal every day and access to medical care, but they are being taught a valuable education that will help change their lives and their community. Many of the children are stateless Haitian children who have no opportunity for education outside of this private school.
Destorage.com matched all monetary donations and raised $11,250 total and collected over 700 pieces of school supplies. “These seemingly small tokens will enable and empower education that will in fact change the lives of these children” says Shawn Rineholt, Ears to Hear Ministries representative. DEStorage.com would like to thank everyone who participated.
