Dr. Caraccio from Sale Creek TN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Uniforms for the Underserved

Help me give my students uniforms! We have been wearing hand me downs and non matching uniforms for the past 5 years. It would mean the world to my team to have a matching set of uniforms.

My Students

We are one of the smallest schools in Hamilton County, TN, which has approximately 45,000 students in its system. Five years ago, I started the school's first ever soccer program. We have been coed for each of those seasons, but last year we had 40 participants.

With the increased participation, we will try to have separate boys and girls teams.

Our school is rural, on the edge of the county. We are not eligible for Title I assistance and have raised all the funds necessary for our supplies on our own. We have kids with mothers and fathers; however the majority of our players are from one parent homes or they live with their grandparents due to some hardship.

My Project

These kids are a family on this team. They feel slighted because we get no help. Everything we do is on our own. We have raised funds nonstop for five years. We have done the best we can, but we need help! Our students are not from affluent families, so we have done all we can in our community. They want nothing more than to look like a team. These uniforms will be used for our boy's and girl's seasons, so they will be used year round. I have a place that has agreed to screen print our logo and numbers, so we just need the shirts! Please help us reach this goal! Unite this group for the first time in our school's history!
