It is unfortunate that teachers have to spend up to $1,000 of their own money on supplies for students every year. It is estimated that more than 15 million children don’t have the resources they need to succeed in school and that teachers spend more than $1 billion a year stocking their own classrooms due to a lack of funding in schools.
Blackwell Elementary school – Adopt-A-Class
We will provide supplies and treats for classroom at holidays and end of school year; help fund field trips for students whose parents cannot; we will work directly with the teacher to determine needs of the class.
We look forward to working with Ms. Abby Dini, MSW Communities In Schools Richmond, Site Coordinator at Blackwell Elementary
