Shoot for the Stars Bracelet

At Little Known Help Zone, we believe in shooting for the stars. That’s why each supplies kit we donate includes personalized items for the children to be empowered in their education and reach success. The new Shoot for the Stars bracelet il_794xN.1806968478_pby4.jpgon the Etsy shop reminds everyone to do just that; embrace their potential for success. In addition to that, it raises money for our monthly classroom project!

This handmade piece is a mixed metal chain bracelet with silver star beads and a lobster clasp. The dangle is delicate and light, and the stars shine.

So head to the etsy shop and do some shopping.

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 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
