Imagine being a child in school and not having a pencil to write down your homework assignment with, or notebook to write it on. Without the right tools, children can't succeed in school.

But there is a simple, practical way you can help. Join our Rally for Education School SmilePacks Drive!


It's so easy!

  1. Gather the needed items
  2. Assemble the SmilePacks.
  3. Enclose $5 per SmilePack (checks payable to “COTN”) to cover the cost of shipping and other program expenses.
  4. Return SmilePacks to COTN (see drop-off locations below).
