LKHZ is excited to announce an exciting collaboration that is enriching our Monthly Classroom Project. The Bryn Mawr Rotary Club has agreed to donate their dictionaries to third grade classrooms at the schools we visit. The first donation will be at Jefferson Marshall Elementary; the Rotary is donating dictionaries for their 80 third grade students. A personal dictionary is a great way for children to enrich their education and we are very excited for this collaboration.

Today was a wonderful day at the Camelot KAPS school in Germantown, PA. We visited and donated over 100 items for their 100 students valued at over $300. This was the latest installment of our classroom project.
Mr. Luke, the music and arts teacher, was kind enough to allow me to visit, meet some of his students, and see the facility. I had a wonderful time and it is always inspiring to make a tangible difference in Philadelphia!
On April 3rd, LKHZ will be visiting Camelot KAPS in Germantown, PA, right outside of Philadelphia. This is a charter school that provides emotional support for students and does wonderful work within the Philadelphia community.
There are 100 students, so LKHZ will be bringing 100 items to signify each student and their potential and success. This school is very hands on with art, meaning a lot of the supplies being delivered will be art focused including paints and even outdoor supplies.
Thank you to all the generous donors including the Emmaus Kiwanis and Valley Forge Rotary club!
This week, Little Known Help Zone had the opportunity to visit 3 different groups to share our mission and raise funds and collect supplies for the classroom project. In a month time frame, we have 115 items, valued over $300, for our classroom efforts!
First, we were welcomed into the Allegro Dance Studio in Emmaus, PA for dancing, snacks, and a talk about service with the girls.
Then, founder Makenna Lenover met with the Dieruff High School Key Club in Allentown, PA to plan a collaborative fundraiser.
Later that day, a visit was made to the Emmaus Kiwanis Club to talk about the classroom project and organization and we collected an abundance of donations from their generous members.

An exciting meeting occurred with Little Known Help Zone yesterday, where we presented about the organization to the Bryn Mawr Rotary club. In addition to discussing our classroom project, we planned to deliver Rotary Dictionaries to all of the 3rd grade classrooms visited! This exciting partnership perpetuates both the Rotary and LKHZ’s mission.
Wednesday was an exciting night for LKHZ because we met with our new community partner, the Valley Forge Kiwanis Club. After explaining our mission, as a group we discussed a supplies drive later in the year to continue to build up our collection for the Monthly Classroom Project.
They also gave a wonderful and generous bag of school supplies donations, which we are very appreciative of.
