Ms. K. from Hayward CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Us Mow Our Garden and Restock Our Supplies!

My students need a variety of school supplies and a small lawnmower to end our year stronger than ever! We have exhausted our pens, pencils, and construction paper for projects.

My Students

My amazing students come from diverse backgrounds. A high percentage of them receive free or reduced price lunch. The students come from high poverty areas. They are faced with enormous challenges but are quite resilient.

Even though, my students come from high poverty areas they are determined to succeed.

Their desire to achieve greatness inspires me to reach out to the world and rally for resources that will assist them on their journey. These amazing students just need a running start! This grant would allow students to finish out the year with basic school supplies such as paper and pencils. This grant would also help us maintain our garden with a small lawnmower.

My Project

This year the students have brought our garden back to life and maintained most of it with weed eaters. There are parts of our garden that need to be mowed. The mower that we are requesting is small but powerful enough to spruce our garden up. As we are approaching the year's end basic school supplies are needed to end the year with a bang!

My students need basic supplies such as paper, pens, and pencils to enable our class room to continue to operate smoothly.

We have exhausted most of our year's basic school supplies and desperately need materials for our class room operations. These supplies would enable students to participate in daily activities.
