More than half of students from low‑income households

My students need basketballs that are age appropriate, hold air and have grip.
Are you the one who is willing to make a difference in the lives of children? Can they count on you to assist them in their success? Children can learn when given the materials for success. These children need someone to believe in them. I do, do you? Please help me, help them. They deserve it!!!
I teach K-5th grade students.
Many of the students at my school are affected by poverty. The school they attend is a Title I, high needs school and most of my students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Many of the students in my school are worried about whether or not they will have something to eat when they get home, a bed to sleep in, and if they will be safe or not. The majority of the students are on free and reduced lunch. Some of them live in cars, live with multiple families, or they live in shelters. Mom and dad have to work two jobs to make ends meet and so the students are responsible for watching their younger siblings. The last thing on their mind when they leave school is homework and reading. That is why it is so important to give them the resources while they are in class and learning. During PE classes the sizes can range from 32-55 students due to teaching 2 classes at once. I have to separate groups into 6 stations to make it all work with that many students
The materials that I am requesting are 6 sets of basketballs. These resources will change the lives of my students by allowing them to become excited about physical activity and through hands on group activities. These resources will assist my students in working together in a cooperative manner. These resources will allow me to build a positive classroom culture. If we had this equipment, it would allow the students to become more fit and I would be able to plan out group activities with my students.
Please be the one to make a difference in the lives of these children.
They are hardworking and dedicated but face many struggles in their day to day lives. They have the potential to do great things. It takes that one person to care. Are you going to be the one person to "PAY IT FORWARD?" I guarantee your generosity will be greatly appreciated and will not go unnoticed. Please help me assist these amazing children on their journey to success. Just think, if you don't, who will? Thank you.
