Support our shipping fund:

This project operates under Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation, a Section 501(c)(3) public charity, which is run by a board of directors made up of partners and staff of the law firm Holland & Knight. Thanks to the 501(c)(3) status, anyone can make a tax deductible

donation to help ship donated school supplies to Afghanistan.  Shipping each box of supplies costs $13.45 regardless of the weight of the box since we ship using a special rate offered for APO addresses.

If you donate, 100% of your donation will be used toward our shipping expenses – none of the money is kept for administrative or other expenses.

If you can help us, please make your check out to “Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation” and put in the memo area “Afghan schools.” (Make sure you include this “Afghan schools” marking because without it the money will go to the Foundation’s general fund and not to our project).

Then mail your check to:

    Oh, I see . . . in the instructions it says to write “Afghan Schools” in the description area. I believe when I donated before, it was in the drop down box and listed in the programs narrative. Tashakur!

    We are conducting a school supply drive. How can we send supplies to you?

    • Liisa Hyvarinen Temple says:

      We no longer send supplies to Afghanistan due to lack of funding. We shut down our operations in October 2012. Please contact Matthew Freeman Project in Savannah, Ga – they still send supplies to Afghanistan.
