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.
Little Known Help Zone’s newest fundraiser is a Blind Book Date program for Spring Break! For $5, if you fill out this form, you can get a used book wrapped and curated for you as a surprise!
All proceeds will go towards our classroom project!
On February 8th, 2018, Little Known Help Zone founder Makenna Lenover was invited to lunch with the Bryn Mawr Rotary Club to discuss the monthly classroom project and LKHZ’s history. Later this year, we will be returning to speak further about the organization and potential partnerships.
On January 18th, LKHZ visited Washington Elementary to deliver about $150 worth of school supplies, including items from our sponsor Myndology, This was a wonderful day spent crafting first with Ms. Emert’s classroom then donating to Ms. Day and Ms. Guranich’s class. The children had lots of questions about the crown and sash and enjoyed the visit.
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.
