My Students

In my building this year, we have approximately 600 students and more than 80% of them come from low-income homes and qualify for free and reduced-price lunches. My building implemented a universal breakfast last year to ensure that each student had access to breakfast.

We have a growing number of students who are not able to find permanent, stable housing.

As a result, students are facing the school day lacking regular access to basic hygiene supplies.

As a school, we do our best to help cover gaps in what students need. However, middle school is an exceptionally difficult time in a young person's life, especially when it comes to hygiene.

My Project

Donations for this project will provide my students with basic necessities that will allow them to come to school and not have to worry about their hygiene. Most of the young ladies at our school are at the age where they are getting their period for the first time. At this age, accidents happen and we often don't have a pair of underwear to provide them with. Many of our female students rely on teachers for pads each day, due to unpredictability of their cycles.

Approximately 30 students in my building are homeless and an additional 80 have a home but are lacking the basic necessities like access to pads and deodorant.

This will improve the education for these students by allowing them to come to school ready to learn.
