Plastic Bottles Needed for Elementary Program

SOTIAdmin Donation needed

SURVIVORS provides emotional support to refugees in San Diego schools through a program called the Refugee School Impact Grant. Elementary through high school students spend time after school doing activities, talking about their new lives, and playing sports. This month, the elementary school kids will be making “calm bottles,” shown below.  It’s a great tool to help children reduce feelings of anxiety, stress, and trauma.

SURVIVORS needs over 155 water bottles to ensure each student can take one home. We are asking that you please contact us if you have any plastic bottles.  We are specifically seeking sturdy bottles, which last longer than bottles made from thin plastic. You may e-mail Niki at or call us at 619-278-2400.


Thank you!
