Help Our Neediest Oakland SOL Families With Warm Winter Jackets!

My students need warm water-proof jackets for the rainy cold winter months!

My Students

I'm excited to teach the founding class of the first new school in Oakland Unified in ten years. O-Sol is located in a low-income neighborhood near the Oakland Coliseum, but its innovative program is attracting students from all over the city.

Some students at SOL come from different dual immersion elementary schools, while others are new arrivals to the US who are relieved to find that their second language is seen as an asset, not a problem.

Many of them come from extremely low-income backgrounds and their families are struggling to make ends meet in a city that is getting outrageously expensive so fast.

My Project

Some of our neediest families are really struggling right now, at a time when Oakland rents are going sky high. Some of our families have had to move repeatedly and some parents are formerly homeless.

Parents shouldn't have to choose between keeping their children warm and getting other necessities.

For those kids, the lack of a warm jacket can also stigmatize them in front of their peers and remind them of the problems at home, distracting from their learning. How can you focus on math and history when you're cold?

A large Bay Area company will double your donation so every dollar will count twice!! Thanks for your support!!!
