Help Keep Students Warm For Winter

My students need school uniforms, hats, gloves, tissues, socks, sneakers, and hygiene products for students that are homeless.

My Students

My school district does not have a center that provides homeless students with clothing and basic items to keep warm during the winter months. Students are English language learners (ELLs) who are learning the English language in addition to their native languages. The ELLs in my classroom represent diverse languages and cultures from around the world. The majority of my students in the United States come from Spanish-speaking countries. These Hispanic children may have many things in common such as customs, foods, dances, values, and the Spanish language. However, there are also many rich cultural differences within and between countries like Argentina, Mexico, Cuba, and El Salvador.

My Project

I have requested uniforms for both boys and girls in a variety of sizes. I have also requested items to keep my students warm during the winter months. Hats, gloves, socks, sneakers, pants, shirts, and hygiene products will help my students come to school everyday ready to learn. This project will benefit those students who truly cannot afford anything and some are homeless This project will benefit my students that come to school in ripped and broken zippered pants, shirts that are brown when they should be white, and shoes that are too small.

These uniforms will help students focus on their school work without tears and anger about the way they look.

A student's spirit can be crushed in a matter of seconds when they don't have clean clothes and basic things to keep them warm while walking to school. Help us keep the students comfortable, and dressed for success!
