My Students

Villa Rica, Georgia is a tight-knit community located in rural west Georgia. Our local middle school is home to over 800 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.

Middle school can be a very challenging time for many students.

In order to be more successful, our students need assistance in meeting some basic personal needs. When students have their basic needs met, they can focus more on being successful academically and socially. Similar projects in the past have helped many of our students feel more confident.

My Project

Villa Rica is full of good, hard working people who strive to do their very best for their children. However, sometimes everyone needs a helping hand.

While there may be significant economic struggles in the community, you will not find administrators or teachers anywhere who are more committed to the students that they serve.

By ensuring that students have access to the hygiene supplies that they need, we can make a difference in student attendance. Further, when students are comfortable, they can worry less about meeting basic needs and focus on their academic pursuits.

The requested items include deodorant, toothbrushes/toothpaste, lip balm, and laundry detergent. These items will be put to direct use by students requesting help with meeting hygiene needs.
