My Students

Our students are creative and wonderful kids! We are a rural school in Arizona. My students are amazing and often do not have access to the basic necessities needed for school.

Please donate to our projects.

I have been using this program for years, trying to get my students the items to help them become better readers, better athletes, and smarter students. Your donation is greatly appreciated and the products will be well taken care of for many years to come. Thank you again for donating to us!

My Project

My students are very interested in a new book I purchased for my classroom. There is a waiting list to read the book.

"Long Way Down" by Jason Reynolds is a compelling story!

There are two versions of this book available. I want to have several copies to allow any student interested in the book to be able to read it.

There is a novel he wrote and a graphic novel included in the project. New literature is needed in my classroom library. Your donation will bring these new books!
