Mrs. Brougham from Denver CO is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Send Kids a Huge Box of School Supplies!

My students need a HUGE box of school supplies like paper, pencils, folders, and markers so kids have what they need to learn!

My Students

The kids in our school love to learn, but we don't have what we need for all their lessons. Most of my students (90%) live far below the poverty line. This makes the job of a school even more important.

The students we teach are living in poverty, but that's just where they are starting.

They have big dreams, but they need to work hard now. They want to become scientists, artists, and mathematicians. Help them reach for those dreams!

My Project

To practice writing, kids need pencils. To draw pictures and make charts, kids need markers. The problem is our classroom doesn't have enough school supplies. Our pencils are mostly broken and their folders are all torn up.

By choosing this project, you will be giving students pencils, markers, and folders-- everything they need for the day's lessons.

We will finally have what we need like a working pencil sharpener and folders to organize their writing. It seems like such a small thing, but sending our class school supplies will make a huge difference. Thank you for caring about our kids!
