“It’s been a really tough transition for us. A lot of our families don’t have internet access or devices, so the Chromebooks that were provided by AdoptAClassroom.org are really helping get our students connected. Technology gives our students the opportunity to see what they can be
and what they’re capable of.”
Ashley, Teacher in Los Angeles, CA

“Thank you so very much for your support. I was able to make packages full of school supplies, books, and snacks for each child in my class. The children and their families were so excited and appreciate your kindness.”
