My students need essential hygiene and warmth items to help them maintain their dignity during incarceration.
My students are incarcerated in a juvenile jail 24 hours a day where they live in tiny cells. Many of my students come from poverty and have experienced trauma or community violence of some kind. Students have struggled with education and often come to the institution having dropped out of school. Up to fifty percent of our population is classified as Special Education and require services for disabilities.
Despite their often challenging circumstances, my students are resilient, brilliant youth who are working hard to transform their lives.
I am lucky enough to be their English teacher and want to give them opportunities to master tools that will help them to empower and rehabilitate themselves.
My students live in cells that are uncomfortable and often cold. Students have asked me politely if I might be able to help them obtain warm socks for their feet at night. Also, since the majority of my students are students of color, the hygiene products provided by the institution are not effective for their hair and skin.
All students deserve to have a sense of self respect and dignity regardless of whether or not they are incarcerated.
Shampoo, conditioner, soap and socks will make a huge difference in the lives of my students who are working hard every day to transform their lives. Please help me help my students.
