We believe public education is to be provided regardless of ones race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or any other distringuiding feature. Public education is an equal education to all children, free of cost.
Equality is not giving everyone shoes: it’s giving everyone shoes that fit.
Targeted Student Needs
Let’s work together to make sure all of our learners are clothed! We know there are clothing banks and low cost clothing stores. We also know sometimes, students are afraid or prideful and won’t ask for help. This helps bridge the gap.
Background: Through existing relationships, our school nurses, social workers, administrators and others will email or communicate a need that a student has. We will share that information with you, the community. You purchase the item, drop it at one of the two locations, and we deliver it to the school of the student in need. This gives the schools one person to contact (keeping things simple for them), removes the need for the school to store items, and keeps the students information confidential. This will include emergency requests.
I know a student with needs… can I add items? Please contact us to have items added.
How to sign up: You must open the spreadsheet either in the app, or in a browser. If you see an item on the list that you are willing to provide, simply add your initials. If you are having difficulty, please reach out to us and we will assist you.
Delivery: Please deliver your items within 2 weeks or signup, otherwise we will remove your signup and open it up for donation again.
What will students ask for? What items can students ask for? Items include but are not limited to: Shirts, sweaters, athletic wear, a suit or a dress, socks, underwear, sneakers, snow boots, mittens, scarves, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, deodorant.
