My Students

My school is a Title I school and most of the students come from high poverty areas themselves. We have a great campaign in place in which we collect items to recycle, sell them, and donate the earnings to the Food Bank and UNICEF.

The vast majority of the students at my school are kind and caring.

They want to help others and our Trash Hunger Campaign allows them to help without impacting their own family's income. Many of the students own families struggle to have food on the table each day. In fact, a student that is homeless himself is one of the top participants. The overall school has embraced the Trash Hunger Campaign. This campaign allows everyone to help and give back.

My Project

My students and I need to expand our Trash Hunger Campaign. We have grown too fast without infrastructure support. People trying to recycle everything and we have been asked to set-up recycling stations at multiple sites around the school and our town. The supplies I have requested will allow us to continue to expand the Trash Hunger Campaign and stay on our current track of recycling items and donating the money we earn to hunger relief agencies. We need clear containers that we can place at multiple locations outside and inside the school building plus other businesses so that people can place their items to recycle in a contact-free setting and stay safe from COVID-19 when they recycle. We also need ink so that we can print colorful signs that tell people exactly what we can recycle and how to recycle it properly.

Now more than ever hunger relief agencies need help and we want to continue to support them expanding the Trash Hunger Campaign.

Donations to this project will improve our entire school and help us turn trash into a meal by allowing us to keep this program going in the pandemic. This project will allow my students to manage this program more efficiently and learn financial literacy, plus the help the environment. The students are gaining leadership and communication skills, expanding their knowledge about finances and the cost of food while protecting the planet and having compassion for others.
