San Diego's Inner-City Kids Need Umbrellas!

Help me give my students umbrellas that are quickly becoming more and more necessary

My Students

My students live in the inner-city and qualify for free lunch because they are considered poor. Yet, they are resilient and ambitious. I teach in a health academy and all my students want to work in the health industry, some as medical assistants or techs and others as physicians and surgeons. One of my students cried the other day saying she is stressed by school, pressure, and the like but she keeps going because she knows she is the way her family can make it out of poverty. My students don’t take anything for granted. They live life on life’s terms and realize they make their lives what they are and what they will become.

My Project

My high school inner-city students need umbrellas! San Diego has become very rainy the past few years and I notice not many students own umbrellas, yet they walk to and from school and many arrive to my classroom soaking wet.

When I ask if they plan to get an umbrella, they explain that their families have other priorities.

Money is scarce for the Title 1 (100% free lunch) population at this high school, so I understand what they mean by umbrellas not being a major concern for their families. Please help keep these kids dry and warm this rainy winter.
