All items collected need to be delivered in a banana box—and each box needs to be labeled on the top of the box as well as on 1 long side and 1 short side with the contents and the weight. If possible, we would prefer that like items are in one box – this will alleviate the need to open and organize all the boxes as they are being distributed.
A $10 USD donation inside EACH box (cash OK or write a check out to Sowing Seeds in Belize).
