Mr. Kohl from Hudson FL is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Cobra Laundry Service

My students need these items to start a laundry business for the school. We are trying to do this to add to their employable skills. The washers and dryers will be essential in the project.

My Students

My students range in age from 12-20 and are special needs students. Some are medically fragile and in wheel chairs and others are able to move around on their own. Each one has their own learning difficulty. We are trying to help them find a way in life to achieve more and to be able to find a skill they can master to make them as independent as possible.

We work with them over the course of 4-6 years to make their quality of life as good as it can be.

They are amazing kids and deserve every opportunity they can get.

My Project

This project will reach 180 students or more in grades 9-12. It is designed to teach our students employable skills or at least life skills that will help make them be more independent. These students come from low income families.

We will teach the students the skills to help them run a laundry business.

Then these students can teach other students how to do their own laundry or if the students choose, our students can do it for them.

This opportunity will lead our students to feel like productive members of the school. It will also help with any hygiene issues that they or any student may have.
