Stronger Hands

Help me give my students the necessary materials they need to build up the strength in their little hands. Before they can write or even draw they need to have enough strength. Thank you!

My Students

My students are amazing little people. They are resilient and have been through so much. Our school is located in Paradise, California. Our entire town and a lot of our school was destroyed in the recent fire.

However, these little angels are safe and Coming to our “new” to us school back in our town.

They have their usual smiles, hugs, and tears. They're full of love and fill my heart with happiness! Please consider this donation to help me do my job as best as possible!

My Project

My classroom burned down last year after the devastating Campfire. I lost everything. My students lost everything. I am working hard to rebuild the supplies needed to teach my students. This year many of my students need additional support in strengthening their hands and their fine motor skills. Many of these students were unable to begin school last year due to the fire, therefore they’re a bit behind. These items all will help them so that we can build the strength in their hands! Once they have the strength we can begin drawing and writing. Thank you so much for your consideration.
