Mrs. Hart from Indianapolis IN is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back Again to Basics

My students need underwear and socks for when they either do not wear any of their own, or soil what they wear, as well as healthy snack and breakfast choices.

My Students

Many children at my school come from high-poverty areas where snacks and under garments are a luxury. For several, necessary daily medications interfere with appetites and schedules, rendering them uninterested in food at breakfast or lunch time, and yearning for food a few hours later.

Even for students who have the basic needs at home, “extras” to boost their energy and to replace soiled or damaged clothing while at school, are more than their families can provide.

Completing morning work on an empty stomach is challenging at best. Playing at recess or in physical education class without underpants is embarrassing in the least. Focusing on math facts during late afternoon tutoring is overwhelming when the fact is, your stomach is growling.

My Project

Students can focus on learning and doing their best only when they feel safe and comfortable. These materials will help my students avoid the embarrassment and stigma of having no undergarments or by continuing to wear garments that have been soiled either at school, or in some cases during the night. Without the resources to send extras to school many parents suffer the humiliation and frustration as well as their students. The healthy snack or breakfast item can boost a child's ability to shift thoughts from hunger to math and reading. These items will allow me to make that powerful difference!
