*Whispers* Oh no I forgot my homework, Im not going to tell the teacher
Hey, so this girl at school forgot her homework because she didnt have paper and pencils at home. She was also afraid to tell the teacher.
Well maybe there are other kids out there who have the same problem. We can ask our friends to help make a donation box so we can give kids backpacks, pencils, paper, and other school supplies.
These are all of the supplies I have collected.
One of Kaitlyn Martinez' classmates failed a homework assignment because she did not have paper and pencil at home and was to embarrassed to tell the teacher. Kaitlyn went to her mom wanting to help her and then said she started wondering how many other kids were failing for the same reason. She asked her to help create a Facebook page and then asked the local church, her school, and a friend to set up donation boxes to collect supplies.During Kaitlyn's first year she collected enough school supplies for 175 students. This year she started an after school club Backpacks 4 Kids AZ and got more students involved. With the help of other students and local business she was able to supply 300 students with backpacks full of supplies.
