Help me give my students the basics for their education by having access to copy and color paper.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach a group of twenty-five first grade students in one of the cities with the highest crime in the nation. All the students at my school site receive a free lunch. A full 97% of my school's student population is Hispanic, and most of them are first-generation in the United States. At least 15% of my students are newcomers to the country. School is one of the only places in which my students interact with someone who speaks academic English.
Living and attending school in a highly impoverished urban setting, my students are not exposed to many educational experiences outside of the classroom.
Exposing my students to different types of learning while keeping them engaged and entertained is very important to me.
Having copy paper available to make copies is highly necessary. In past years, my site has had difficulty keeping a working Xerox machine. Not this year, but this year paper is lacking. I have gotten very creative and have students do much more writing, but there are some occasions on which a lesson would move much more smoothly if copy paper were available to provide students with copies. I've also asked for color paper to use for announcements for parents and for classroom usage.
Please allow me as a teacher and my students to have more effective lessons in which time is not wasted by having students copy things down.
We need white and color paper so that I can Xerox copy material and have it ready to use in our daily lessons.
