LKHZ’s New Initiative

When Little Known Help Zone was started, it sprang from injustice, compassion, and passion. A 14 year old girl with the drive to make a difference. Something that I always heard when I was younger was “more young kids need to do things like this.” I spoke about it too. Organizations would bring me in as a nonprofit founder and I would be this teenage figure that should inspire others.

I’m 22 now, and while my big campaigns have filled me with joy, I’m starting graduate school and a job, and I don’t have 3 hours to drive into Philly traffic and donate pencils. Instead, I want to take Little Known Help Zone to a new level, supporting kids and their service projects.

I want to sustain the way I felt and inspire others.

This will be done through Color Creates a Brighter Future, my children’s coloring book that teaches kids how to recognize inequality and make a difference in their world.

LKHZ will be reading the book different places, giving children bookmarks that are a guide to starting their own service projects, and hosting a bi-yearly grant contest to support service initiatives!

We’re excited for this new initiative, as all great things evolve to shine light in the world, LKHZ has too.

Monthly Classroom Project

Ludlow Elementary Classroom Visit

Right before Spring Break, Little Known Help Zone will be donating to Ludlow Elementary school as part of our monthly classroom project. This has been in motion since March, for our March school, and is finally coming to fruition this April.

Ludlow is located in Old Kensington, Philadelphia, and is a Philadelphia School District Public School. Ludlower serves approximately 400 students in grades Pre-K through 8th grade.  Seventy two percent of Ludlow students are African American, twenty one percent are Latino, two percent is Asian, one percent Caucasian, and four percent are multicultural. Twenty seven percent of our students receive special education services.

This was a great school for LKHZ, and we are donating to not 1, but three classrooms! This includes a 5th grade, 3rd grade, and 2nd grade class! Some items include pencils, notebooks, craft supplies, and cleaning supplies. These are essential for the school’s success, and many people often forget that even near the end of the year, classroom supplies is needed.

Stay tuned for photos and information about the visit next week!

 

Monthly Classroom Project

Monthly Classroom Project Preparation

On February 1st, LKHZ will be visiting Mosser Elementary School in Allentown, PA to deliver to 4 new classrooms for the Monthly Classroom Project. This includes two learning support classrooms, a first grade classroom, and a kindergarten classroom.

Thanks to recent generous donations, we were able to purchase $200 of supplies, and have more donations from sponsors to be joined with the kits!

Items include a rug for a sensory nook, basic school supplies, and lots of toys and learning items to have fun while learning.

Stay tuned for photos from the visit!
