Visit to Washington Elementary

On Wednesday, October 18th, we visited Washington Elementary in Allentown.

First, Makenna spent time with Ms. Emert’s classroom, reading Wonder to the students and making candy corn man crafts. This was August’s Classroom Donation.

Next, she delivered $75 of donations to Ms. Sprang’s 2nd grade classroom, September’s Classroom Donation.

Finally, she delivered $75 of supplies to Ms. Huff’s 2nd grade classroom and read The Little Old Lady that Wasn’t Scared of Anything. This was October’s Classroom Donation.

It was a wonderful time spreading supplies and assisting these classrooms while having fun!

Classroom of the Month

This month, we will be donating to Ms. Huff’s 2nd grade classroom at Washington Elementary. There are 22 students, 15 girls and 7 boys. We will be giving her classroom some communal supplies as well as each child a personal kit with donations from Myndology and Pilot.

We will be visiting on Wednesday, October 18th to read books to the classrooms and drop off the supplies!

Social Media Monthly Campaign

Starting this month, Little Known Help Zone is going to be doing a monthly fundraising campaign for a classroom in addition to our monthly donation. We will be trying this out in September.

On September 18th, we will post a donor choose classroom in need of help. Each day, we will share that on our social media. For every share and retweet we receive, we will donate a dollar to the classroom! The goal is to fund the classroom each month!

Stay tuned for our first classroom!

Generous Myndology Sponsorship

Today we want to share with you an incredibly generous and kid donation sponsorship by Myndology for our classroom donation project! Myndology was kind enough to send us a very large box full of a variety of their products, and opening it was like Christmas morning. With over 50 notecard packs, over 70 notebooks, and 36 scheduling pads just to start, this will make sure our students each month are prepared to take on the school year.

Donations to Ms. Emert’s Classroom

Yesterday, Little Known Help Zone was able to drop off $150 worth of school supplies to Ms. Emert’s Classroom. This was incredibly exciting and her classroom was set up in such a friendly and open way. I placed each kit on each desk for the students to see on their first day of school.

In October, I will be returning to read books and do crafts with her 8 students of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. She teaches both verbal and nonverbal students on the autism spectrum in the Allentown School District. Additional good news is that all three of her Donor’s Choose campaigns were funded! This was a true success for LKHZ’s first classroom donation.

Astrobright Paper Donation from Neenah Paper

Colored paper is a great way for students to interact with handouts in the classroom. It makes things more fun, more engaging, and improves interaction. Ms. Emert’s classroom was in need of the colored paper to print her worksheets and handouts on. This can become quite expensive, but Little Known Help Zone was incredibly fortunate to receive a donation of a large pack of Astrobright paper from Neenah paper. This was a very generous donation and will be delivered with Ms. Emert’s craft kits and soap for the new school year.
