L3 | LOVE LITERACY LIFE got its start in the fall of 2014 after Board Member Kimberley Montini, a teacher at Mark Twain Elementary in Kansas City, KS confided to a friend that there were children at her school who were in dire need. Too many did not have adequate winter shoes or coats and the teachers and staff were not able to collect enough to provide for each. They needed help, and to answer that call a group of people came together to offer assistance.
Being a teacher is a noble and challenging work, and the challenges are sometimes not what we might expect. Unfortunately many school districts don’t have the funds to adequately supply classrooms, causing teachers to buy some of the paper, notebooks, pencils, and pens they need. This can present a significant hardship. Fortunately, there are teachers in schools who have surplus items at the end of the school year which they generously donate to L3 for Mark Twain Elementary.
Volunteers have been sorting the donations into categories this summer. Now, volunteers are needed to help set them out at the school so that teachers can come and take what they need.
Supplies are in boxes and will be moved from the storage closet (in the gym) to tables that will be set up in the gym. The supplies will be placed on the tables by categories.
Dress: Casual and Comfortable! (You may want to bring a bottle water.)
Age: Volunteers must be at least 12 or older and attend with an adult.
**Please leave all valuables and personal belongings locked in your car, there is nowhere to leave them during the event.
Any questions, please feel free to contact me directly 913-744-5266 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Waitlist: If an event is full volunteers can join the waitlist. If a spot opens up, you are automatically added to the attending list in the order you joined the waitlist. Please remove yourself from the waitlist if you make other plans so the next available person can join in the event of a last minute cancellation.
