Mrs. Hampton from Hamilton OH is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Allergen Free and Healthy

My students need a clean and healthy environment in which they learn and thrive as healthy individuals. By supplying the school with a backpack vacuum the building will have less allergens that cause illness.

My Students

The physical population of the community displays lowered self-image and decreases aspirations when compared to those in surrounding areas. Many students live in substandard housing and their parents are receiving government assistance. Historically the area in which they live promotes lowered self-image, decreased academic achievement and lack of a personal belief system that offers success.

The area in which the students live has been economically disadvantaged due to major industries leaving the area and leaving the residents in poor working class status or unemployed.

The overall community struggles with an east-side, west-side concept, with students who live in and attend school on the east side area being considered substandard in both intellect and economics and physical abilities.

My Project

A backpack vacuum and shampooer will make it easy for all staff to participate in keeping our building allergen free and providing the students with a healthy learning environment.

Healthy students miss less days of school and produce more meaningful assignments.

As we all know spills and accidents happen, the shampooer and vacuum will allow each teacher to keep their room smelling fresh, looking clean and providing a healthy learning environment for the students.

Students and staff desire to work in a clean and healthy environment. Dust, dirt, fungi, bacteria, and a host of other particles can get stuck in the fibers of carpet over time and turn it into a health hazard.
