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 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
