TUE. JUN 1 DEADLINE TO HELP! - EMEMENTARY SCHOOL NEEDS YOU!
Reddick Elementary School
Many of the teachers at Reddick Elementary School (RES) need supplies for their classrooms, which school districts do not provide.  Since some students cannot afford to purchase such supplies, teachers pay for the supplies they need, out of their own pockets. As teachers are often poorly paid, many, must choose between buying products for their classrooms—or for their own households, especially during these challenging Covid times. Teachers and their classrooms need supplies on an ongoing basis, regardless of school projects or the generosity of relatives and friends. Individuals, organizations, and/or  companies can directly supply a classroom with items that teachers and students need daily: • paper. • crayons • markers. • hand- sanitizer. • Wipes • Snack • folders • Erasers • Composition notebooks • reading books for the school library.   Or, items which are part of special projects or experiences teachers want to provide for their students. You can make a difference and help our RES teachers from your office or home. Here are the simple steps to buy these items online and have them shipped directly to the teachers at Reddick Elementary School.
1.           Click on the following link which wil take you directly to the RES teachers - https://www.classroomgiving.org/florida/wimauma
