Little Known Help Zone: Giving Children What They Need is Little Known Help Zone’s monthly classroom project that combines advocacy, action, and legacy to make sustainable change in America’s education system.
Here are our updates from November:
-We are still looking for our November classroom to sponsor, we have lots of supplies to give!
-On December 6th, shop LKHZ at the Bryn Mawr Staff Association Craft Fair! This is in the Great Hall from 10-2.
-Our Pink Zebra Fundraiser is still going on, shop here! We get 40% of the money raised! https://www.pinkzebrahome.com/hjfoster/Order.asp?partyid=237878
-LKHZ is developing a coloring book to be sold to support our classroom project. This book is also a story that encourages children to engage in service projects and move our world forward! We are looking for investors for this project.
For the third year in a row, Little Known Help Zone will have a table set up at the Bryn Mawr Staff Association Craft Fair! This is a wonderful holiday craft fair with great vendors, a lot of whom are giving back. Stop by and support to help fund our classroom a month project! There will be some new and special items for sale this day!
This event is December 6th from 10am-2pm in the Great Hall at Bryn Mawr College.
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!
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!
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.
Myndology is well known for their ringed notecard sets, which is used for organization at Little Known Help Zone. They also make amazing ringed notebooks and sticky notes. Check out their site here to order some for yourself, the paper quality is amazing and the products are innovative and come in incredibly fun colors.
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.
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.
