A Cart To Protect Our Technology From Future Hurricanes!

My students need a charging cart to protect our kindles, iPads, and new laptop so we can safely store and charge our electric devices after using them .

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students come from southeast Houston. Most of my students are on free or reduced-price lunch. The apartments that surround the school, where the majority of the students live, were so devastated by Hurricane Harvey that most of my students' apartments were flooded and they needed to evacuate. Most of my students are now living with extended family, friends, or in a shelter. Their lives changed drastically just within that horrible week of the Hurricane. I want to continue to support them now that we are back in school. School should be the place they feel safe.

My Project

We desperately need a cart to protect our new kindles and notebook computer from any damage from future storms. We are so very excited to be getting these items but we want to make sure we store them in a safe place in case we get another hurricane . The cart will be great because I can charge all the kindles and computer at the same time and securely lock it up at night to make sure it is there when we return to next day. The cart will make it so easy for my students to go to the cart and get a charged kindle the do their activity.
