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 and Leos, 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 as many as 40 students. Kit distribution is determined by UNICEF.
