ACCA’s efforts for the Back to School Campaign are especially crucial during this year in light of the economic upheaval and health crisis Covid-19 has caused.

Donations provide funds for nutritious meals, educational supplies and other vital aid to help children in the local community get back to the basics. Children living in poverty are especially vulnerable, needing the support of ACCA and the community help now more than ever, while providing educational support has always been one of the main missions of ACCA.

Donations to the campaign make a fundamental difference to the lives of children in the Algarve.
Donating items is easy, you can donate items through Curiosa Living Furniture Shop on EN125, Sitio do Troto 385A, Almancil, open 9am-6pm, Monday through Saturday, which is the main drop off point. On the west coast you can contact Vicki Good at Holiday Inn on: 282320260 or Su Davis on: 932307548. You may also call Wanda Crawford on 919617995 or email or alternatively, you may donate directly into the charity account and ACCA volunteers will shop for the needy children on your behalf.

ACCA needs backpacks, coloured pencils, 24-pack Crayons, erasers, glue sticks, highlighters and markers, loose-leaf paper, notebooks, binders, pens, pencils/mechanical pencils, pencil boxes and sharpeners, pocket folders, rulers, scissors, highlighters, calculators, paper and TI calculators for advanced high school science and maths (Texas Instruments).

Also, if anyone has laptops or tablets that they are not utilising, ACCA will recirculate them to impoverished families who need them for schooling.
