Monthly Classroom Project Preparation

On February 1st, LKHZ will be visiting Mosser Elementary School in Allentown, PA to deliver to 4 new classrooms for the Monthly Classroom Project. This includes two learning support classrooms, a first grade classroom, and a kindergarten classroom.

Thanks to recent generous donations, we were able to purchase $200 of supplies, and have more donations from sponsors to be joined with the kits!

Items include a rug for a sensory nook, basic school supplies, and lots of toys and learning items to have fun while learning.

Stay tuned for photos from the visit!

Trip to Nicaragua

The past week, Little Known Help Zone had the opportunity to travel to Nicaragua and meet with two organizations located in Granada.

We first visited Puedo Leer Biblioteca, a quaint, adorable library with the most enjoyable reading space and the kindest people. We donated rewards for incentivized reading and books in Spanish.

 

The next day, we stopped by La Esperanza Granda to donate a variety of books, craft supplies, and school supplies.

It was wonderful collaborating with new organizations and meeting the people of Nicaragua.

In Mexico- Book Delivery!

While in Mexico this past week, LKHZ donated a large bag of books to KKIS, Keeping Kids in School. This organization donates large amounts of school supplies (over 2,000 bags) to students in Mexican schools, as well as a box of supplies for the teachers. These English library books, donated by Salisbury Middle School last year during a trip to El Salvador, will help children practice reading English at school and also serves as a great exposure to younger kids.

Check out KKIS to learn more about their amazing work!
