In Desperate Need of Backpacks

My students need backpacks to provide them with a way to carry school work to and from school.

My Students

My classroom is located in a middle school in a very low-income area of our city. My kids usually have a difficult time acquiring even the most basic of educational supplies such as paper and pencils, never mind creative supplies such as calculators, paper, markers, and colored pencils.

They are great kids that can really benefit from extra school supplies at their disposal.

Each day our kids come to school and are usually unprepared for the day. Whenever a teacher can provide missing resources, it is a win for them.

My Project

This project will make a difference to our students because it will provide them with a new resource that they can enjoy and be proud of. Many of the materials and resources we have are used or second hand. New materials give our kids a reason to come to school and have fun while learning. This project will provide our kids with a great resource that can be used on a daily basis. These materials will help advance their academic careers by providing them with new resources.

We have so many kids that are constantly in need of a backpack for their school supplies and work..

These backpacks would really help these kids out and provide them with a much needed resource that their family can't provide for them.
