Help me give my students cozy coats they can keep in their lockers, so they won't be cold in our classroom or at recess this winter.

My Students

My littles live below the poverty level in a high-crime area, but that doesn't change them from being children who are curious about the world, full of wonder and eager to learn new things. I love that I get to create a safe environment for them to drop the emotional armor they need to survive their lives outside of school. I love that I get to guide these little children to love and value learning.

The path from my home to the school measures 36 miles and goes across 4 highways, past 9 cities, and through heavy traffic, and I travel it pleasantly because I want to be a part of all children having access to an excellent education.

Please help me create the environment these children need so they can focus on building the foundation of their education.

My Project

My students are in need of jackets that we can store in their lockers. Our classroom is absolutely frigid in the winter because the room isn't properly insulated. It's so sad to see the little ones stuffing their arms inside of their shirts to stay warm because their families can't afford jackets.

This creates a HUGE problem because children can't learn if their basic needs are not met.

When the children are cold, they can't concentrate and become irritable. With these fleece jackets, the children will be warm and in mental space to learn! Keeping the jackets at school will ensure the children can use them every day and they won't get lost or forgotten at home.
