My Students

My students live in a high poverty area. Despite this, they are smart and loving. I see them work hard each day, and I want them to be successful learners and thinkers, almost as much as they do themselves!

They deserve to learn in ways that are beneficial to them and their growth.

Please help me to help them learn and grow. I promise you won't regret it! My students surely will not forget how you took a moment to let them know that they are important too. Your donation, no matter how great or small, will reach multiple children for years to come.

My Project

As we come upon the end of the school year, my students need some motivation to help them finish strong. With their days full of learning, and burning energy, they need some snacks and supplies to help them complete the year successfully.

Empty bellies lead to wondering minds, and I need my students focused on learning, not hunger pains!

Please help me keep their attention focused on what's important, and not on their growling bellies. Your support is appreciated and my students love to know that there are wonderfully kind people out there who care about them, and if they're successful. You make them believe that they do matter!
