Using the most conservative estimates of only people who reported back after clearing lists and estimating a list average of $500 there were $766,503 that went directly to students in need during this campaign.

    First, I would like to extend my deepest appreciation for your “Clear the List” initiative you organized over the summer. When I saw it, I added my school’s list and thought it was a shot in the dark and would never be selected. To our surprise, a generous individual chose my school, and blessed us with so many resources for our students’ Care Closet.

    Just a little background for you, I am currently the principal of School #4 in the urban city of Linden, NJ. My elementary school houses 448 students. Approximately 80% of these students receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch. Many times our students come to school lacking the basic necessities that would allow them to focus on having a successful school day. I created a “Care Closet” that students could access should they need toiletries, personal hygiene products, clothing, school supplies and food. The closet just gives our students one thing less to worry about, so they can focus on class and have a productive school day.
    As the seasons change and the temperature drops, many students will lack outerwear (coats, hats, gloves and scarves). Being that we are a walking school, students brave the outdoor elements unprepared and without the clothing they need to be warm and dry. It is heartbreaking watching young children walk into school shivering because they go without the proper outerwear.
    My staff and I have gone to the extent of providing these things for students, however the need has grown substantially.
    This Christmas, my goal is to provide winter coats for all of my children. We are reaching out to local vendors in the hope that they will support this initiative and assist the children and families of their community. This is not a small task. I am inquiring to see if you have chosen individuals who will benefit from your Giving Tuesday initiative. If not, I am asking if you would consider the students of Linden School #4. Our students are loving and kind despite the odds they go up against daily. They are grateful for the littlest things, and don’t ask for much. Providing them with a new coat would truly warm their hearts and spirits this holiday season.
    Any assistance you would be willing to provide would be so appreciated by myself, the staff, and families of our school. Thank you for your consideration, and for the many opportunities that you give back to others throughout the year. It truly is amazing.

    Stay well,
    Suzanne Olivero

    I wanted to extend another THANK YOU to the companies that donated supplies from my Amazon wishlist last year. I was working in a Title I school and the students and teachers greatly appreciated updated supplies, teaching manipulative and winter clothing. What you’re doing is absolutely amazing and makes educators feel worthy of being treated as professionals. I have now transitioned from being a special educator to an ESOL teacher. My new families are beyond appreciative and have the upmost respect for what I do for them and their children. Your donations have also helped my new EL students have the proper supplies and resources to be successful. Thank you, thank, thank you!!
