Beyond the Ocean: Surfers Help Baler Kids in Back-to-School Program

Now on its third year, Baler Back to School Drive intends to bring more smiles to the faces of its adopted children in the surfing town in the east.

Last year, more than a hundred pupils in dire need of new inspiration were the beneficiaries of the program. Held were a feeding program, a day of fun and games, and distribution of clothes and toys.

Through a special collaboration with Mahdox Surf School and your help, more students will be given their much-needed school supplies on June 13-15.

1. Pad Paper
2. Notebook
3. Pencils and pen
4. Crayons
5. Folders and envelopes
6. Bond paper
7. Art materials
8. Other schoo needs (undershirts, socks, shoes, slippers, bags)
