New Etsy Listings

This has been a busy month in the Little Known Help Zone production lab! We have added a variety of new jewelry items, over 34, to the shop.

This jewelry making work included making new variations of two known and loved items in the shop already, the Key of Hope Necklaces and the Ocean Treasures Rings.

The Key of Hope Necklaces have 5 new variations with vintage key pendants. The chain necklaces make a beautiful statement and all the proceeds support the classroom project.

The Ocean Treasure’s Rings have 24 new variations with seaglass, tile, stones, and shell collected from various island locations! Some are layered, some are big and bold, others minimal and subtle. There’s something to suit every style here.

Partnership with Crayon Collection

Little Known Help Zone is thrilled to announce a new initiative to support the Monthly Classroom Project, a partnership with Crayon Collection. This nonprofit fuses a commitment to the environment with art education in underfunded public schools. Through this work, they collect crayons from restaurants that are barely used and then donate them to schools.

This line of work aligns with Little Known Help Zone’s mission to empower students in their education (and our commitment to the environment with our recycled goods fundraising program).

LKHZ will be working with local restaurants in the Philadelphia and Allentown area to collect lightly used crayons and donate them to the schools we work with during the monthly classroom collaboration!

Monthly Classroom Project- St. Labre Indian School- Montana

For Little Known Help Zone’s Back to School Monthly Classroom Project event, we donated to the 3 campuses of the St. Labre Indian School in Ashland, Montana.

About St. Labre:

At St. Labre, we believe that all students deserve a superior education and that all students can achieve at the highest levels by educating the whole child.  Beginning with pre-school and kindergarten, through high school we provide an exceptional education to nearly 750 students across three Southeastern Montana campuses.  In addition to our regular program of elementary and secondary education, we offer classes in home economics, music and art, and a full complement of sports and athletics.

The St. Labre educational experience also places great importance on Native American culture and tradition. Instruction in Native American languages and culture is a vital part of the curriculum. We also offer courses in Native American literature, history, and tribal government.

Included in this package was over $100 of much needed school supplies, including pencils, dry erase markers, gluesticks, and more. Additionally, thanks to the generosity of Robert Sherry, we were able to send 50 hats so the students can stay warm during the cold winter months.

Special thanks to Robert Sherry for setting this partnership up, Little Known Help Zone could not think of a school they would like to assist more for the Back to School Season!

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
