My Students

Our school is located in the heart of Jefferson County, Mississippi. Our town has no industry and very few employment opportunities. It was recently reported that we are the poorest county in the United States, which is hard to imagine. My students live in a poverty-stricken area, and all of them qualify for free lunch. More than three-fourths of them live in poverty.

We live in one of the poorest counties in the United States.

These precious children need to learn basic skills in order to break the bonds of poverty. Job opportunities are very limited in this area, and parents struggle to provide basic needs. Your donations make a huge difference in the quality of education for our children.

Help my students thrive! These students deserve an education. They desperately need a learning environment in which they can succeed. Help me provide them with a positive learning experience.

My Project

Please fund this project so my students can stay warm. Our school is designed so we have a long walk from classrooms to cafeteria and other activities. The walk is outside! When students do not have a jacket they really get cold. It would be amazing to let them have a jacket to keep them warm.

It is cold outside and we need jackets!

So often students come to school without weather appropriate clothes and it is hard to watch a child shiver because they do not have a jacket. Please help provide them with a jacket.
