Whirlpool: Washer/Dryer to the Rescue

Help me give my students a washer and dryer, with detergent, so that they can have clean clothes throughout the school year.

My Students

My students are a wonderful and exciting group of four and five-year-old boys and girls, in an ICT (integrated collaborative teaching) classroom. This means that 40% of my students are in special education, and the rest are in general education.

We are a Title I school and work hard to ensure that everyone learns and succeeds.

I want them to have everything they need and deserve to have to make their school year exciting and fun, as well as productive and successful throughout the entire year.

My Project

My students are amazing and I want to ensure that they have clean clothes to wear throughout the school year. Many of my students' families struggle to afford to wash clothes on a regular basis. Many families are Title I and cannot afford to spend money just to go to the laundromat. Can you imagine that? Having to go to school and worry that the other kids may laugh at you because of your stained clothing.

Please help make a Whirlpool of a difference for my students, as well as other kids who attend the school, through the use of these amazing Whirlpool appliances.

A child should not have to worry about getting teased because of soiled clothing and a parent should not have to struggle because they can't afford laundromat prices. These Whirlpool washer/dryer appliances can make a world of difference and bring smiles to little kids faces. Please help any way you can!
