Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am in desperate need of 40 milk crates. I am a 4th grade teacher. I teach in a very low-income neighborhood on Staten Island. I have a packed classroom and the students have small, old desks. I do have many textbooks, and workbooks for them to work from but my problem is STORAGE. I want each child to have a milk crate under their desk to hold all of their books and pencil boxes and such. I don't care what color- I just want milk crates. I cannot afford to go out and purchase them. I do buy so many items for these boys and girls. I give them notebooks, crayons, pencils, glue, paper, folders, and so many other items throughout the year. The milk crates would be so helpful. They can be used year after year by each student. Thanks so much in advance for sending me 40 milk crates.
