TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need shoes that fit properly and are in good condition.
My elementary school is an Urban school that serves 630 students from a multitude of different ethnicity including African American, Hispanic, Caucasian, French and Asian American students in grades PK - 6th. All of our students qualify for free/reduced meals (breakfast and lunch) and come from a low socio-economic background.
Many of our students are transient and most live with grandparents, aunts/uncles, foster parents and homeless shelters.
Our school has a Food Backpack Program that is sponsored through the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to help feed our needy students that otherwise would not have food for the weekend. This year alone, the food Backpack program has given over 6,400 meals to our students.
Over half of the students that attend my elementary school come to school with inadequate and overly worn shoes. Their shoes are too small with holes in them. We have students who come to school with duck taped shoes and without shoe laces. We also have students coming to school wearing flip flops in the middle of winter.
Unfortunately, many of our students walk to and from school everyday with inappropriate and outdated footwear which affects their ability to focus on their academic successes.
Your donation will help tremendously support our children physically and emotionally. Academically they will be able to focus on learning instead of worrying about the soreness and condition of their feet. I have had many students come to me crying because their feet hurts due to the holes in their shoes, the wrong size of their shoes, and the worn out condition of their shoes. Our students will benefit greatly from your donations and we truly need all of your help.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
