Opportunities for Kindness

Alarm Clocks - NEED 20 MORE

We are working to improve student attendance and are helping students to be on time every day. We would like our students to be more independent and have a non-cell phone option to help them wake up in the mornings by providing good old-fashioned alarm clocks to a target group of students.

Recently Filled Needs

Middle school student in need of clothing

During some of the recent storms that have passed through our area, we had a family whose ceiling collapsed in their daughter's bedroom. Many of her clothes have been ruined. 

NEED -  gift cards or donations for clothes shopping

Clothing closet in need of unisex pants

Longcoy clothing closet is in need of unisex pants for students in sizes 5-6 and 7-8, this will help any student who comes to the clinic in need of clean pants.

Glue Sticks and Composition Notebooks

Stanton Middle School maintains a supply closet for families that cannot afford school supplies, and yesterday we ran out of glue sticks and composition notebooks. 

We could use 100 of each item.

7 Pocket Expanding File Folders

One of our teachers would like to have her students get a specific expandable folder for her classroom this year, but estimates that 25-30 of the students may not be able to afford it.




We have a clothes closet at Stanton Middle School that relies on donations from the community. One item that we do not often receive as a donation is new underwear. We are currently in need of both men's and women's underwear in all sizes (SM, M, L, XL). Any donations can be dropped off at the neighborhood bridges drop off sites. 

Re-usable Water Bottles -Stanton Middle School

We have multiple water-bottle refilling stations in our school, but many of our students do not have a water bottle. We'd love to be able to get some reusable water bottles into the hands of our students so students can stay in class, and we don't fill the landfills with single-use plastic bottles.
