Warm Beginnings

Help me give my students a warm beginning with winter jackets and gloves to keep them warm as they walk to school in the cold weather.

My Students

My students reside in a low income poverty stricken neighborhood where their families face many challenges daily. For many of them, my class is their first experience in school and I want to expose them to learning in a clean and safe environment. Many come from one parent families. Some of them have a high school diploma and have limited job skills. They often have difficulty providing the basic necessities for their child.

I want my students to be able to maintain attendance by coming to school dressed for the cold weather wearing their winter jackets and gloves as they begin classes daily ready to learn.

My students are young, sweet, kind, lovable and eager to learn. They are adjusting to school. They love to take part in language, cognitive, social/emotional, fine and gross motor activities, as well as adaptive and moral development. All of these domains help in shaping the child.

My Project

This project of winter jackets and gloves will help the families meet their basic needs for their child as the cold weather approaches. Many parents do not have the money to purchase winter jackets and gloves for their child due to homelessness. Some students currently reside in shelters or are living separate from their family members. Unemployment and homelessness are pervasive issues that plague this community as well as transportation. Some of the students walk several blocks daily to get to school. These materials will make a difference because every child will have a jacket and gloves to wear as they walk to school to learn daily.

Homelessness is a pervasive problem in this community and the students will be able to have a warm beginning, maintain their health and daily attendance because of your donations of jackets and gloves.

Their need for jackets and gloves is greater because the cold weather permits the students from attending school. In this case, they will be able to attend school daily and warm as they walk to school in their winter jackets and gloves. Your donations of a jacket and a pair of gloves for each child as they walk to school will be warmly appreciated.
