On Saturday, January 13th, Makenna Lenover, the founder of Little Known Help Zone, was crowned Miss Freedom Forge 2018. This means that Little Known Help Zone is now her platform, where she’ll be advocating for supplying children with what they need for educational success and empowering them in their goals.
Little Known Help Zone’s action, the monthly classroom project, will continue along with an advocacy portion with speaking engagements and a legacy that involves encouraging youth to act and make an effort to make a difference in their communities.

Little Known Help Zone is publishing a book!
After 6 years, we are publishing a children’s coloring book. This book will teach children how to identify their passions and start their own service projects.
Even better, all of the proceeds from this book will go back to Little Known Help Zone’s monthly classroom project!
We’re looking for sponsors for the book’s publishing as well as additional promotional merchandise like shirts and stickers.
Here is the link if you would like to sponsor.
On Wednesday, December 6th, LKHZ participated (for the third year in a row) at the Bryn Mawr Staff Association Holiday Craft Fair!
This was a wonderful event with many vendors, and LKHZ sold our items to raise money for our monthly classroom project. Items included crayons and cacti among other LKHZ favs.
This was a successful event raising over $100 for the project!
Thank you to all who helped and shopped, we’ll see you again next year!
