Helping “basic needs” students

From Preston Allen, Rutherford County Schools, North Carolina

Many times I take for granted what I have now and the things I had growing up.  Some of our high school students have situations that are hard to imagine. My colleagues and I noticed that several of our freshmen are not having their basic needs met.  They lack clothes, shoes, food, attention, and love.

Generosity and humility are evident as a group of us teachers provides for these students’ basic needs. The result is that these students know we care and their attitudes, behavior and academics have improved.

Generosity and humility make a big difference in student’s lives; ours, too.
