Sometimes we take for granted the simple and basica things in life. However there are many families struggling to acquire such basic needs. We would like to continue helping these families by providing the neccessary items they need to live a productive life. The School suuplies drive is a great way to help and we "Thank you for your continued support". This is our fourth year, please continue to give what you can. Your service is also greatly appreciated as we are always looking for volunteers.
When families face decisions, such as keeping their lights on or their children’s bellies full, it means their children’s backpacks remain empty. Every school year, these students bear the burden of knowing their families cannot provide the required classroom supplies.
If preparation is the key to success, think of the difference it can make for these children to have the classroom tools they need. Something seemingly so simple as a pencil and paper has a tremendous impact in a child’s success in the classroom and in life.
When teachers have students who cannot provide their own materials, it places an incredible burden and strain on the classroom. How will they ensure these students can participate fully? How will they ensure equity? Educators are increasingly expected to provide supplementary and even foundational supplies for their classrooms, often just so they can provide basic curriculum and instruction. They regularly do so, making it the rare profession where an employee takes money from their own pocket to pay to do their job.
