In honor of National Teacher Appreciation Day, The Office of Angela Scott donated 40% of all purchases last Tuesday to GO Campaign, helping educators in low income neighborhoods in Los Angeles.
The event was a huge success – with The Office of Angela Scott donating nearly $6,000!
This donation will go to providing funding for instructors who lead an after-school program raising student achievement around Los Angeles’ University Park neighborhood. The neighborhood is densely populated, low income, and home to many immigrant families. The schools in community struggle to meet the needs of their students.
At most schools in the community, the concentration of low-income children is above 90%, and often 30-50% are English Language Learners (ELL). With large class sizes, high teacher turnover and limited support staff, many students don’t get the help they need. Children entering middle school with math and reading deficits face overwhelming obstacles to college-readiness. Because of The Office of Angela Scott and shoppers like you, an individualized reading curriculum for local area students can have the personalized support they need.
A huge thank you to The Office of Angela Scott for believing in teachers and children!
