In NYC schools, supplies are not always in abundance. And, some kids are not able to bring in the needed supplies on a class list.
This is why when my savvy ladies and I were thinking of who to donate school supplies to, we had the perfect person in mind. Our friend works in a Title 1 Bronx school and we thought it would be nice to shower her with gifts to start the school year off right.
We asked our friends to donate supplies including Purell sanitizer for our endeavor. We started getting Purell products as well as crayons and pencils.
Then, we attended Blogger Bash in NYC. During the two-day event in NYC, we were able to meet with Crayola and School Specialty. When we told them about our project to support the community, they were happy to participate and were very generous and made our collection super successful.
Making the choice to give it to one local teacher made me feel that my daughters and I could make a difference for 1 second grade classroom. Sometimes, you just need to look right in your own community to see where the need is and how best you can help.
This year, NYC teachers will receive a stipend of $77 called Teacher’s Choice. This money is a mere drop in the bucket for the money that teachers spend on school supplies for their classroom and for the children in their classroom. By gathering School Specialty and Crayola supplies, a true gift is being given to begin September with a smile for the teacher and the students.
PURELL® Hand Sanitizer is partnering with Champions for Kids and WalMart to ensure students have the supplies they need as they head back to school with the PURELL® Lend a Hand Program.
Raising 3 Savvy Ladies was happy to participate in this program and help a local teacher gather much needed supplies for her classroom.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other leading health organizations, proper hand hygiene is one of the most important preventative measures you can take to reduce your risk of illness and infection. When soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains as least 60% alcohol.
Why PURELL Products Should Be On Your Back-to-School Shopping List
- Hand hygiene is one of the most important measures a person can take to reduce the spread of germs that cause illness and infection.
- Hand hygiene is especially important for school-aged children because they are spending most of their time in one room. In fact, according to a study conducted by the makers of PURELL, absenteeism caused by illness was 51% lower in classrooms that used PURELL Hand Sanitizer regularly and implemented a hand hygiene education program than those classrooms that did not.
