Provide the need to our students that otherwise would feel like failures

Being a Parent Consultant with our school, I hear things that almost breaks my heart. This is what keeps me fighting to see our students have basic needs in life.
As a teen child, you don't want folks to know your homeless. You want your clothes to look like everyone else. You want your shoes to look new or being a boy wearing your sisters hand me downs. Heaven sakes it is a must to wear different colored socks or have a Justin Bieber notebook or folder.
What I would like to do is something very simple for these students.
Card war, with simple thoughts of how to overcome challenges, dollar or two, a gift card to purchase a shirts or personal items. It does not need to be much, but something to give them a hope they so need.
Prize box of love for those that need a shoulder to lean on. Because this being the Holday season, it would give them great pleasure to open.
We have started a box with mom's gifts, holding jewelry that I have made for our school PTA support. Students can bring there grade cards in for points to purchase these items as gifts or for themselves. (P>S> I can use supplies)
Thanks to one of my wishupon hero, 17 pairs of either shoes or boots vouchers from Payless shoes have been collected. Our teaching staff have made a challenge to each other to provide more vouches and socks to students in need. They grouped up to provide Holiday meals to our students in need. Our book lady, bless her heart has provided two sections of our book room to provide collection of our can and box goods. We are going to continue this on an as needed bases through out the whole year.
I am so greatful for the friends, teachers and students that have come out in force to provide to our students in need.
I will provide address upon request. Anyone living in our area, we can provide an address to deliver directly to the school. We do not have the place to put clothing, that can be brought to me. Were in need of shirts for both male and female at this time. Show-Homeless-and-needy-teens-there-is-hope
