Caring Heart for Kids
Lewiston, Maine, United States
I work in a Title I school and some of our families don't have enough money to provide basic necessities to their family. I am starting a "closet" where I will have items like shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, backpacks, coats, ski pants, etc. for those in need.
I alone will have access to distribute the items as needed so as to ensure that nothing goes to waste.
How much will each student in need get at any one time?
Each student in need will get only what they need. If they only need a toothbrush and toothpaste, that is all they will get. If a student comes to me and needs one of everything, then they will get one of everything.
What kind of population do you serve at your school?
We have a large population of Somali immigrants in our community as well as children of all races whose parents' income is well below the poverty line.
