Put a Smile on a Face!

Help me give my students the basic school needs they need to do their best in the classroom. Having things like folders and pencils will truly make a world of difference for my students.

My Students

I work at a title one school. All my students receive a free breakfast and most are on free and reduced lunch. My school works hard to meet the most basic need, food (YAY!) However, due to the majority of my students being below the poverty line they do not have basic school needs. A pencil, markers or even glue sticks would make my students feel so prepared to attack a new school year. Could you help me change a life? When we believe in our students and equip them with the proper materials they can reach the stars. Help my sweet students reach the stars.

My students are inquisitive and eager to learn, however, the lack of access to basic school materials such as pencils and folders makes it hard for learning to take place.

Help me supply my students with some basic needs so they can be successful in the classroom!

My Project

These supplies help meet basic school needs, things as small as a pencil can go such a long way. When my students don't have a folder I want to be able to give them one. These supplies will be used throughout the year and are vital in the classroom.

My students shouldn't have to worry if they have what they need to be successful in the classroom.

I want each student to know they have access to anything they need to do their best in the learning environment. Lack of access to school supplies should never hold someone back. Help me fill that gap.
