My students need balls for the playground! Soccer is such a popular game at my school and we have no balls. Please provide these so my students can play games.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I believe in the American dream and that people can rise up and improve their circumstances. As a result, I am continually trying to support my students and find alternative resources for funding I can bring into my classroom. This may be in the form of school supplies, field trip money or equipment.
I teach in a high poverty school in Northern California where 95 percent of my students qualify for free and reduced lunch and the majority of the kids are learning English as a second language.
Our school has a community food bank that hands out free food to families in need on Tuesdays. I often even donate my own grocery bags to this cause to help those in need because in California people are charged ten cents a bag now. It would seem the cost of living continually keeps going up outpacing many peoples' income.
Balls are expensive and often one of the last things I think to purchase with classroom money. Usually I am focused on items such as pencils and crayons.
Please help school children by providing them with Franklin Competition 100 Soccer Balls with Pump Set - 6 Pack to get exercise and promote social skills through play at recess.
Remember back to when you were in school. Were you the kid who would run to get the soccer ball first? If you were that child you know how important sports equipment can be to bring kids together for healthy living and camaraderie.
