My Students

I teach high school kids from all around New York City. They come from different boroughs and neighborhoods all trying to get away from violent gangs and trying to focus on their education. They are a great group of kids who are always looking for ways to learn new things about technology. They come to the classroom filled with interest and creative minds. More than a positive attitude and thirst for learning, these kids come to my classroom with empty stomachs and excessive troubles brought about by homelessness and other social issues from their communities. They often ask if I have food, water, and other household items to give them because they are feeling hungry, have not had a decent meal, or need products to keep themselves hygienic.

My Project

My students who come from homeless shelters and other challenging environments will greatly benefit from receiving these hygiene and wellness products such as Cottonelle wet wipes, Tide laundry detergent pods, Colgate toothpaste, and Cold press organic fruit juice to help them maintain good health as well as practice good sanitary habits to keep them hygienic. They can now come to class ready to learn because they feel clean and refreshed. They do not have to worry about being bullied because of how they smell or how they look like because they can clean their clothes and keep their breath smelling fresh.
