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!

PETE&C Presentation

On Wednesday, February 24th, Founder Makenna Lenover will be speaking at PETE&C, the Pennsylvania Educational Technology Expo and Conference located at Hershey Lodge. The speech will be highlighting approaches to education to inspire students to give back on their own, implementing technology platforms for personal growth, and how this learning approach can create tangible results. All of this will be exemplified by sharing the growth and endeavors of Little Known Help Zone.

This speech will raise awareness about LKHZ and its causes to a largescale group of people, and will result in a donation that will be incredibly helpful to the causes. 12417855_10205446011890785_1733858868723505983_n

LKHZ at the Bryn Mawr College Staff Association Holiday Fair

If you’re in the area, come out and see LKHZ at the Bryn Mawr College staff association craft fair from 10-2 on December 3rd in Thomas Great Hall. As always, all money made will be donated to LKHZ causes, specifically sponsored students needs and a scholarship fund for next year.

This is a really exciting opportunity to raise money for causes and get the word out about the organization and mission amongst staff and alumnae from Bryn Mawr College. This networking will hopefully make fruitful connections for future partnerships.

For sale will be Key Of Knowledge necklaces, tab bracelets, shell rings, crayons, and other jewelry.

Hope to see you there!
