My Students

Hello! I'm J Johnson from GA. Our English dept. teaches about 200 students per day at a high school. Our school is mostly free and reduced lunch, so your donations are much appreciated and needed. Our students are grateful for anything you give them, so we thank you for taking the time to read our needs. They are willing to learn, so it is exciting to try this project.

Thank-you so much for your time!

We look forward to learning because of you!

My Project

Pens, Please!

Our students need pens, please, to write every day.

I am an English teacher in rural Chatsworth, Ga. My high school English classes are in desperate need of pens. I have about two hundred students, who sometimes sit without pens each day. I am hoping there is a way we could receive a donation of pens. I'd do anything to help these students become more prepared and can practice our writing skills.

Let's help the students write! Writing is essential, but we need writing materials to help! We have paper, but pens are what is most commonly missing. Can you help us write by supplying pens? Supplying pens will give students a way to feel prepared each day.

We write every day in class, but some students are not prepared due to the lack of school supplies.

We need pens for each student, so each student can start every day with a writing utensil. Please help me in getting pens for my students. We will enjoy writing you thank-you letters for your donation!
