Help me give my students gloves for warmth, masks for protection, and food to fill an empty belly.

My Students

I am a Special Education Life Skills teacher in an urban, inner-city school district. My students are special because of their wide range of abilities and unique talents. My students have individualized needs that are truly enriched and celebrated in our classroom! Our students have a lot of basic needs that are not always met at home.

My Project

We have a strong need for masks, gloves, and food items. Sometimes, not all of our student's essential needs are met at home. Some of our student's most basic needs are met when they excitedly show up at school each day.

Your donation would help provide students with warmth, protection, and snacks to allow them to focus on learning rather than an empty belly, lack of warmth, or sickness.

The bare necessities will allow our students to focus on what they should be doing during classtime, learning to the best of their ability.
