Mr. Zummo from Philadelphia PA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Carts for Security

Help me give my students the gift of security. By donating these two ball carts, the team will not have to worry about equipment missing or walking off with someone whom the equipment does not belong to.

My Students

Most of my students come from low-income families. My students deserve the same opportunities as some of the suburban districts when it comes to supplies and field trips.

Though we try our best to fundraise; it is very difficult to raise enough money to cover the costs for equipment and gear.

The kids deserve the opportunity to use and wear the best equipment and with your help they will be able to do so!

My Project

We have been very fortunate to have brand new equipment donated to our team. The only issue is that we do not have a secure place to store them. These carts would be such a huge help with ensuring that the equipment does not leave the gym or school building. Both of the carts will be used to store balls and/or training equipment for the girls basketball teams. There aren't many secure places to keep supplies let alone sports equipment. These cages would make a huge difference for us! Thank you so very much!
