VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ:

The Detroit public school system has been ordered to close half its schools to make up for a $327 million deficit. The school closings will cause class sizes to bulge to 60.

Detroit public school graduation rate is 32%

Detroit has the highest poverty rate among 20 largest American cities and the Detroit median household income of $28,069 is the lowest among those cities.

82% High percentage of students eligible for free and reduced lunch

People reading this need to find this alarming, and unsettling enough to take ACTION.

The need has NEVER been greater – please help students in need with your contribution of a new Bookbag, An Assortment or Bundle of School Supplies, or a Monetary Donation.

* Any contributions or donations valued at $20 or more will be eligible for tax exemption!
