Mr. R. from Brooklyn NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Team Goes in Brooklyn - Part V

My students need equipment to store and sterilize the wrestling mats they use every day for wrestling practice and matches.

  • $329 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

We wrestle hard, not dirty! I am a third year varsity wrestling coach in a high needs, inner city school whose budget has been cut to the bone. Donors from this website have funded our entire program, and we look to you again to maintain the cleanliness of our practice and match equipment.

Our team practices on mats that our custodial staff will not give us the supplies to properly clean and prevent infection or skin disease outbreaks. We need to sterilize our facilities, and also store our mats after practice everyday.

If you can please support our team, we need mat cleaner and mat storage straps for our program. This may seem trivial compared to other requests, but it is vital to the health of our team and the maintenance of our very expensive mats, another great donation we are trying to make last!

Help us make this a safe, healthy, productive season for our team with your generous donations. You are our biggest supporters, thank you all again for your previous support and hopefully your funding of this project as well!

Mr. R.
Grades 9-12
Nearly all students from low‑income households
