The students, families, and teachers of our neighborhood elementary school have a variety of needs that regularly go unmet. 38% of the students at the school are on free or reduced meals.

In the spring when the weather starts to warm up, daylight savings occurs and it is fun to play outside, there is nothing better for a child than to have a new pair of athletic shoes.

In the midst of a normal day at school, spills happen and accidents take place. Often students do not have a second set of clothes into which they can change. We will make sure that the school nurse has sufficient and proper-sized clothing for children when the need arises.
When students run short of supplies, teachers must find a way to provide them. Sometimes the teachers themselves will personally purchase what their kids need. Let’s provide supplies for the teachers so they have what they need to educate their students.
