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.
Little Known Help Zone is publishing a book!
After 6 years, we are publishing a children’s coloring book. This book will teach children how to identify their passions and start their own service projects.
Even better, all of the proceeds from this book will go back to Little Known Help Zone’s monthly classroom project!
We’re looking for sponsors for the book’s publishing as well as additional promotional merchandise like shirts and stickers.
Here is the link if you would like to sponsor.
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.

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!
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.

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!
