Ludlow Elementary Classroom Visit

Right before Spring Break, Little Known Help Zone will be donating to Ludlow Elementary school as part of our monthly classroom project. This has been in motion since March, for our March school, and is finally coming to fruition this April.

Ludlow is located in Old Kensington, Philadelphia, and is a Philadelphia School District Public School. Ludlower serves approximately 400 students in grades Pre-K through 8th grade.  Seventy two percent of Ludlow students are African American, twenty one percent are Latino, two percent is Asian, one percent Caucasian, and four percent are multicultural. Twenty seven percent of our students receive special education services.

This was a great school for LKHZ, and we are donating to not 1, but three classrooms! This includes a 5th grade, 3rd grade, and 2nd grade class! Some items include pencils, notebooks, craft supplies, and cleaning supplies. These are essential for the school’s success, and many people often forget that even near the end of the year, classroom supplies is needed.

Stay tuned for photos and information about the visit next week!

Monthly Classroom Project Visits- January and February

Sometimes, the weather just gets int he way of plans, which is why this Friday was a monthly classroom project visit extravaganza, going to two schools, seven classrooms, and bringing over $500 worth of supplies and 130 Valentines!

First on the agenda was Mosser Elementary School in Allentown, PA. This was on the East Side of Allentown, and I donated to 4 different classrooms. This included a first grade room, kindergarten class, and 2 learning support classes. This was all new teachers, and was a great visit. They all also got a copy of Color Creates a Brighter Future.

Then, I went to Central Elementary School in Allentown, and donated to three more classrooms in first, third, and fourth grade!

This was a wonderful trip, and everyone loved the supplies and the fun themed Valentines.

Monthly Classroom Project: Esperanza Charter Academy

On Monday, Little Known Help Zone paid a visit to the Esperanza Charter Academy, donating to the 2nd grade classrooms. The kids were out on a field trip that day, but it was great to see the North Philadelphia facility and meet some of the administrative staff and leaders.

This growing charter school is devoted to its students success, and we were happy to donate to three different classrooms!

Monthly Classroom Project, My Community

Partnership with Crayon Collection

Little Known Help Zone is thrilled to announce a new initiative to support the Monthly Classroom Project, a partnership with Crayon Collection. This nonprofit fuses a commitment to the environment with art education in underfunded public schools. Through this work, they collect crayons from restaurants that are barely used and then donate them to schools.

This line of work aligns with Little Known Help Zone’s mission to empower students in their education (and our commitment to the environment with our recycled goods fundraising program).

LKHZ will be working with local restaurants in the Philadelphia and Allentown area to collect lightly used crayons and donate them to the schools we work with during the monthly classroom collaboration!
