Mrs. Regenthal from Jersey City NJ is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Clean Clothes- Part 2

Help me give my students the detergent and dryer to go along with a previously purchased washing machine. These are necessary for them to be hygienic and have clean clothes in school, so they can focus on learning!

My Students

Working in an urban area, we have a lot of students that come from economically challenged homes. They aren’t able to afford basic hygienic needs such as clean clothes. Most of our students have to pay at laundromats to wash their clothes. Sometimes, they don’t either have the money or their parents don’t have the time to wash them for school, so they come dirty or with an odor.

We wear uniforms, so some students will wear the same uniform for multiple days.

This effects their learning because they can’t concentrate or they miss class time for not having their uniforms on.

My Project

Students who have clean clothes on for school each day, will not only feel more confident, but they will also be able to focus their attention on their learning. The dryer and detergent, along with a previously purchased washing machine (thanks to donors like you), will provide a safe, clean, environment for students who don't have the ability to wash and dry their clothes at home and can't always afford to pay to go the expensive laundromat.

Students in our school wear uniforms.

They are sometimes out of uniform because they say they had no clean uniforms to wear. This can result in missed class time because of the consequences for being out of uniform. Parents and students may be embarrassed that they can't afford to wash their clothes. This removes that hardship from their lives, which in turn, creates less stressed, happier families.
