Mrs. Hester from Greenville SC is requesting materials related to Food, Clothing & Hygiene through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need gift cards to donate to The Department of Social Services in our community to support homeless students as they are transitioned to foster care or temporary housing.
At my school, "Every Student Counts and Every Moment Matters!"
Our students come to school each and every day ready to take on the world and to learn, challenging themselves to be better than they were the day before!
As an educator entering my 15th year of service, with experience as both a teacher and administrator, I consider it one of my life's greatest blessings to be able to work alongside the best student scholars and educators in the country! MES, my home for the last two years, is committed to providing its students with all of the resources that are needed to engage students in rigorous, dynamic and inspirational instructional activities. There may be times when we do not have what we need, but we have taken on the "We can't yet..." not a "We can't..." attitude. Maybe we currently cannot provide our students with all of the most innovative technology available, maybe we currently do not have a 1,000+ book classroom library of high-interest books in every classroom, but soon we will! All of the resources we want to provide to our students are available to us through the magic of DonorsChoose.org thanks to donors like YOU!
"It is not enough to be compassionate. You must act." - Dalai Lama
The students at MES want to give back to their peers throughout the community who are struggling with tough home situations.
In our community, there are too many children that are homeless and being moved to foster care or transitional housing with the help of The Department of Social Services. Too often, these DSS case workers must provide hot meals to children using personal income, just as teachers pay for classroom supplies out of their own pockets. In conjunction with EdCamp Greenville, who is currently sponsoring a Gift Card Drive, the students and staff at MES want to donate McDonald's gift cards to the Greenville Social Services office to assist those in need. During situations such as these, a Happy Meal can provide a smile to a child during a very difficult situation.
We hope that you will support our project as we work to give back to our community and the children in it that need all of our prayers and support. Thank you to DonorsChoose.org for allowing our students to support those in their community that are in need!
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
