My Students

We are in a school where our entire student body receives free or lunch and breakfast. These students are so eager to learn but are sometimes limited by the materials and care that they are able to get, whether from home or donated from other sources. Students need a lot of extra support and are so excited when I am able to bring in supplies and materials that they can use. These kiddos are wonderful students who just need a little extra support!

My Project

Many of my students come to school at the beginning of the year without basic supplies. Many of the families in the school that I teach at just cannot afford them. By donating to this project, you are ensuring that my students have what they need to learn. They won't have to worry about pencils, crayons, markers or notebooks. They can come to school ready to learn, knowing that they will have what they need. Parents will not have to worry about paying for the supplies and can concentrate on other things. I feel like by taking this burden off of my students and their families they will be able to focus on other things. Your donation will help make this possible!
