Ms. H. from Akron OH is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Gotta Have Food!

My students need a microwave and refrigerator to keep their food cold and heated up when it time to eat breakfast and lunch.

My Students

My students are very excited about learning each day! They absolutely love music, hands-on activities, engaging projects, and challenges that allow them to seek out answers to any problem! They come to school each day ready to grow both personally and academically regardless of their own home lives.

Many of my students are hoping to one day become teachers.

Truly, they are the reason why I come to school ready to teach each day!

My Project

Many of my students come from single-parent and low income families. Due to many families trying to figure out each day how they can meet everyday expenses, I do not want families to worry about their children getting enough food to eat or their children wondering when their next meal will be.

I am asking for a refrigerator and microwave to help relieve some of this stress for them.

I try my best to do what I can, but I need your help. I am asking for the fridge to keep food cold so it will be safe to eat and a microwave to heat up their cold food up. By donating to our project, you will help to improve and increase student focus because the students will not have to worry about where their next warm meal will be coming from. My students can focus on their academics and not feel hungry.
