The School-in-a-Box Program can provide a club or district with the opportunity to help contribute toward the education needs of children whose schooling has been disrupted by wars, disasters and other emergency situations. Lions, through a designated donation to Lions Clubs International Foundation, can help to provide a "School-in-a-Box" kit with essential school supplies for an instructor and up to 40 students. Kit distribution is determined by UNICEF.
Each UNICEF School-in-a-Box costs approximately US$215. Lions clubs, Leo clubs, districts or multiple districts who wish to donate to the purchase of a School-in-a-Box kit should send a check made payable to: "Lions Clubs International Foundation" with the notation, "School-in-a-Box" and send to:
