Title-One schools often lack essential resources and tools that other schools take for granted. By definition, they are schools where 40-100% of the student body receives free and reduced lunch.
Our program gives hope and encouragement to the staff and students by providing basic needs like coats in winter and food during the school year for students. In addition, this program provides materials for the teachers as well as special treats for them throughout the year. Every year we provide a Back to School Pack for 300 teachers through our Make a Teacher Smile Campaign. Most teachers have to purchase back to school supplies from their own pockets at Title-One Schools. We try to make it a little easier on them by supplying these items through monetary and community donations. If teachers do not have to worry about the needs of their classrooms, then they can focus on the most important part: The student!
