Has God burdened your heart for children in need around the globe?
Send hope and school supplies to kids who need them most – Pack Kits for Kids!
What are Kits for Kids?
Kits for Kids are bundles of basic school supplies to help children with little access to the things they need for school. Your kit will give a child the chance to learn, grow, and succeed. He or she will treasure your gifts!
One kit will cost around $15 or less.
- You can buy items in bulk at your local big box store or online.
- All kits must include all of the requested items. Some items listed may only available in quantities larger than needed. Feel free to include a box marked “extras” when you ship them. Or save them for another project!
Gather your small group, Sunday school class, children’s ministry, or friends and family and have a packing party!
- Follow the instructions on the list you downloaded in Step 1.
- Be sure to include everything on the list.
- For children’s groups, print stickers to celebrate packing the kits. You can download the PDF here and print on Avery 22830 labels (get at any office supply store). It’s a fun way for kids to show they care about others.
- Once your kits are ready, they will go to BGR partners around the world…and to the kids who need them most!
Can I add other things to the kits?
- Please refrain from adding cards, letters, photos, directories, bulletins or ANY other items that are not specifically identified in the instructions. Good intentions can inadvertently cause delays with customs or compromise the safety of our partners living in the field.
Package your kits and ship them to:

You make a difference!
“Receiving the school kit … was a very great thing which will help me a lot. I will use the school kit for my future projects at school, which will help me progress in my academic work. I am very thankful for having been one of the children who had the opportunity to be given the school kits. Thank you.”

One way your kit helps:
When you live in poverty, receiving help with items like pencils, pens, erasers etc. makes such a big difference in the lives of the kids. They can go from feeling ridiculed and ashamed because they are poor and don’t have the things needed to do their school work to being able to excel in school.
Want to go deeper? Become a Champion Church!
We are in the pilot stage of this program. Would you and your church like to help this project grow? We are looking for Champion Churches who will:
- Give feedback on buying and packing the kits
- Share your ideas of how your church collected, promoted, and assembled the kits
- Take on a bigger role of being a collection point by promoting the kits in your region, collecting kits from other churches, and helping ship the kits to the BGR office in Nashville
