Activated Life volunteers donated more than 250 youth desks and art supplies to the doorsteps of the children living in the City of Coatesville, PA (just 39 miles west of Philadelphia).
It is clear the highest magnitude of learning losses will take place in low income communities.
After seeing many children in Coatesville were forced to learn virtually from a kitchen or coffee table, we wanted to deliver those in need with a flat, stable and clean surface to use as their 'virtual' classroom at home. Creating a healthy learning environment away from common distractions builds stronger home learning habits even after schools reopen.
We sourced school desks from the Coatesville Impact Opportunity Zone (OZ) Fund and art supplies, paint, so the kids can take this initiative one step further and personalize their desk with colors and creativity truly making it their own.
100% of your donation goes for:
Activated Life volunteers drop off the desks on the front porches of the families in need in, thus ensuring the safety of the community and our volunteers.
