Monthly Classroom Project Donations

Yesterday, Little Known Help Zone visited Washington Elementary School in Allentown, PA to donate school supplies for our monthly classroom project. We brought over $500 worth of supplies to 2 classrooms.

Ms. Lovelidge is a wonderful first grade teacher who really emphasizes the arts in her class. She gives her students an outlet to be creative and express themselves, and they love it. You should see their beautiful creations!

Ms. Brennert is an English as a Second Language teacher to over 50 students! It was vital to bring her the basics so she could supply her classrooms with what they need to feel more empowered and ready in school.

Allentown Cherry Blossom Festival 2018

Little Known Help Zone had the pleasure of tabling at the Allentown Cherry Blossom Festival 2018 to share our organization with the community and talk about our mission for educational empowerment and success, as well as our work within the Allentown community. We also were giving out gifts with donations, and these were grow your own cherry blossom tree kits. We raised over $50 for our next classroom visit and had a wonderful time conversing with residents.31433342_2153953671543569_1530255812757570325_n.jpg

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!

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.

Craft Kits for Ms. Emert

Our donation for our August classroom, Ms. Emert’s fourth grade low income classroom of students with autism, is underway and we have some really exciting goodies for her 8 students. Ms. Emert always makes her students craft kits so Little Known Help Zone took over this for the school year. Check out the photo of the kits, but included inside are pencils, crayons, a Little Known Help Zone crayon, scissors, gluesticks, and markers with a pencil case. We also will be donating a large pack of playdoh for sensory play.

If you would like to donate more, please let us know. Stay tuned for posts about our sponsors for this project!
