    Guess the person coming to the DR and thinking about the kids works there. Letting their fellow workers and/or clients know they can contribute.

    Our coffee clutch meets at a seniors complex (don't live there) but once a year they allow me to put up a poster and I collect used eyeglasses to take to the DR.

    Yes, on the bulletin board. It's large building that also houses State offices, daughter works there as Probation Officer. A Sheriff's Department employee posted it. Lots of Dominicans in the area, enough that the Dominican Consulate has office hours in AC every Thursday.

    I can't speak for the entire USA but in my area this time of year several large chain supermarkets have school supplies at discounted prices.

    Yes they do. I learned a long tim ago that school supplies are like gold to Dominican families. And pens!  I've seen grown men get excited over a sandwich bag full of pens. We tend to accumulate them, so every trip down I bring a bunch.

    Last year I gave a fountain-pen to my six years old niece, nothing special (couple of euro's) or expensive. The college teacher didn't know what it was at first, she had to explain her .
    Now I brought 10 of these, most of the kids wanted one and the teacher as well. Great. Writing with a FP is the best you can have to develop a nice hand-writing and a good grip.

    What is the average cost to get a child enrolled in public school? Including uniform, shoes, books etc. I remember reading some posts about this but can't find them when searching.

    I remember one year Matilda organized a back to school project for a school in Esperanza. I think it was about $40US back then. Hopefully she will see this and chime in
