School Supplies Desperately Needed!

The cost of classroom supplies such as pencils, pens, tape, markers, staples and more is $572, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I teach junior high English in a small town in Mississippi. Many of our students are from low income families that can't provide the necessary school supplies. I'm asking for your help to supply these items that my classroom needs to function properly. I need such things as staples, paper for copies, markers, erasers, pencils, pens, notebooks, Kleenex, hand sanitizer, etc. My students come from lower income families, and often, they cannot provide the supplies needed for the beginning of the year. Many times this expense come out of a teacher's pockets. I'm asking for your help to provide for my students' supply needs when their families can't or won't do it for them. Many times they are too proud or embarrassed to ask, so I just put it in with the other students' as though they brought it themselves. I find myself unable to bear the expense alone anymore. If you would like to help me provide deserving students with the necessary supplies, please help fund my proposal.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
