Cliffs Residents Provide Orphanage School In Ethiopia with Their First Individual School Kits!
“You have to understand these children ages 3 to10 years have not even seen a coloring book. Imagine how the will feel when they see the generous school kits from the Cliffs residents!”
Emmebeth, a graduate of the orphanage herself, was in tears as she saw the gift packs ready to be shipped to her home town in Ethiopia. Emmebeth will be bringing them with her on her yearly 5 week journey to give back to the school and orphanage that was her home for so many years.
Residents at the Cliffs took on a goal of raising $300 for the project but raised $426, instead. Enough to cover not only supplies but airline shipping fees as well. Beside coloring books, each kit contained crayons, pencils, pens, notebooks, flip flop sandals, lollipops, sharpeners and erasers.
Ethiopia is on the east coast of Africa and in desperate need of charitable support.
The Cliffs at Eagle Rock is a non-profit Assisted Living & Alzheimer Community in the heart of West Orange. Residents are now walking laps around the Cliffs for the month of July to raise funds to send a child to camp.
