An exciting meeting occurred with Little Known Help Zone yesterday, where we presented about the organization to the Bryn Mawr Rotary club. In addition to discussing our classroom project, we planned to deliver Rotary Dictionaries to all of the 3rd grade classrooms visited! This exciting partnership perpetuates both the Rotary and LKHZ’s mission.
On Wednesday, December 6th, LKHZ participated (for the third year in a row) at the Bryn Mawr Staff Association Holiday Craft Fair!
This was a wonderful event with many vendors, and LKHZ sold our items to raise money for our monthly classroom project. Items included crayons and cacti among other LKHZ favs.
This was a successful event raising over $100 for the project!
Thank you to all who helped and shopped, we’ll see you again next year!
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.
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!
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!
Each month, Little Known Help Zone will be partnering with a local classroom in need to donate supplies for students and teachers so they can fulfill their potential and have the best learning experience possible.
Our classroom for August is Ms. Emert of Washington Elementary in Allentown, PA. Ms. Emert is the kindhearted teacher of 8 students from low income backgrounds on the autism spectrum. She is committed to their learning and provides them with everything they need including school supplies craft kits, sensory items, books, and fun paper and classroom supplies to make handouts more interactive.
Little Known Help Zone will be purchasing the school supplies kits for each of the 8 students, as well as some other supplies for her classroom.
One way you can help even more is to donate to one of her Donor’s Choose Platforms so she can order additional supplies that is much needed for a wonderful and successful school year!
After 6 years of active fundraising and trips to Central America, Little Known Help Zone has donated over $10,000 to vital causes including children’s education, animal rights, labor rights, and more. This has been an incredible accomplishment, and we have no intentions of stopping our travels and efforts.
In all of these years, LKHZ was so steadfast in supporting education abroad, we were blind to the needs of education in the states. No system is perfect, and Little Known Help Zone is ready to devote time and resources to improving children’s educational resources within the states.
School supplies, though a small piece to the larger puzzle, can make a major difference in the lives of children domestically and abroad. Often overlooked, having the right tools to succeed is the first step to feeling more confident and prepared.
After speaking at PETE&C, founder Makenna Lenover has truly seen the passion teachers have for education and wants to not only support students, but teachers in their passion for learning. Learning materials are one of the keys to a more student based learning experience that is memorable and impactful.
Little Known Help Zone will be partnering with schools to provide school supplies for students in financial hardship and teachers in classrooms while continuing our work abroad.
