School Supplies For Underprivileged Children

My students need general school supplies to last the rest of the school year. I am requesting pencils, markers, crayons, erasers, colored pencils, etc.

My Students

Everyday children ask their teachers for regular pencils. Unfortunately, many of the students at our school do not have the funds to get the much needed school supplies. Our teachers spend their own money on general supplies for their students.

The students at this school have the best attitudes and are grateful for what they have.

Unfortunately, they don't have much. Around 88% of our families are of low-socioeconomic status and are not able to provide simple school supplies that all students need. Majority of our students are Hispanic and African American.

My Project

The students would be able to get a sense of pride with having their own school supplies. They will no longer have to ask their teacher for things that they do not have. This will help increase their independence. They will be able to do daily activities that the teacher assigns by having the necessary materials.

This will change my students' lives for the better because they will have the needed materials to complete everyday tasks in the classroom.

They will no longer have to ask their teacher for simple supplies. This will help increase their independence and sense of pride!
