Monthly Classroom Project: South Philadelphia High School

This week, Little Known Help Zone was thrilled to visit another school for the monthly classroom project in Philadelphia, the South Philadelphia High School.

Located on Broad Street, this school is beautiful and noticeable with the gorgeous murals outside. They are diverse, bright, and inviting. Once inside, there are still more murals and art pieces decorating the halls.

I donated art supplies to the art teacher, as well as a ton of classroom and plant supplies to the ecology teacher.

I also got to see some of the school and learn about their student body. What used to be one of the largest high schools in Philadelphia now has 600 students, 50% as ESL students and Special Ed students.

Thank you to Janelle for arranging this!

Monthly Classroom Project: Esperanza Charter Academy

On Monday, Little Known Help Zone paid a visit to the Esperanza Charter Academy, donating to the 2nd grade classrooms. The kids were out on a field trip that day, but it was great to see the North Philadelphia facility and meet some of the administrative staff and leaders.

This growing charter school is devoted to its students success, and we were happy to donate to three different classrooms!

Christmas Bed Donation

Just in time for Christmas, LKHZ utilized the money from December successes to donate a bed to sponsored student Julio’s family. Right now, the family of 5 shares 2 beds, so this extra bed will be a huge relief for the family. For $170, Julio will receive a bed and a mattress, made by the organization Mayan Families’ workshop (that also commissions other young Mayan students in the trade craft of furniture making, supplying them with a skill and income).

If you would like to give back this holiday season, consider donating a set of sheets for $25 to Julio’s family as well. Comment below or email to learn how to donate.

Happy Holidays!
