Hope you all doing well with Swami’s grace.

First off all, I would like to invite you all to Greensboro on the occasion of Avatar’s Day celebrations.

 

as part of this occasion, we have initiated one service project (Teachers Supply) [ based on our study and discussions with local county schools, there is a desperate need of supplies for teachers].

 

Why we need to do only for Guilford County ?, Here is some Statistics,

 
 
  • Guilford County Schools (GCS) has a large number of students who live at or below poverty level-48.5% of GCS students qualify for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program.

 

  • When parents can’t afford school supplies for their children, teachers often make up the difference.

 

  • According to a national study, teachers spend $500-$800 per year of their own money to supply their classrooms.

 

 

I would like to invite and extend my invitation to you all to participate on this service project.

please refer below sign-up link,

Drop box will be available at the venue to collect all items on Avatar’s Day.

 

The spreadsheet includes all items along with statistics on the current needs in Guilford County.

Note that this list includes hygiene supplies as well, for example, Kleenex, Sanitizers, etc.
