Kits 4 Kids


The COVID-19 crisis has affected the way students share supplies in the classroom and prompted two Royal Oak High School seniors to come up with a plan to get supply kits in the hands of over 500 kindergartners. Class of 2021 students Nadia Weller and Danya Sahib reached out to Royal Oak Schools with the idea of raising money and getting items donated for students. Their grassroots efforts are behind, "Kits 4 Kids." They created a wish list with the help of Keller Elementary Principal Marcie Dryden. They researched the items needed and put together cost points to determine how much a kit of the supplies would cost per student. They created the marketing for the project, created a  account for donations and an Amazon wishlist.


The ladies will collect the donations and make needed purchases for the student kits and put together all donated items into usable, individual supply kits for kindergartners for the fall. Their goal is to raise $5000 or to receive all of the items needed for the 525 kits. We hope you'll join this community driven team to help build individual kits of school supplies for kindergartners in Royal Oak Schools and help to preserve their safety and education. 

We are also looking for sponsors so if any group wants to sponsor 100 kits or give a donation to buy specific items that would be great too.
