Dorm-in-a-Box

The Description

This is a project to supply graduating seniors with basic dorm room supplies as they prepare to start the next phase of their academic endeavors.  My 2019 goal is to fill 19 storage boxes with items needed to outfit a first-time dorm room, including sheets, pillow, comforter, towels, and mattress protector. Students will be identified based on need. More than half of the students at Allderdice High School come from low-income households.

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal, I will purchase as many supplies as I can to fill a smaller number of storage boxes.
