Whittier Middle School
One of the ways we have committed to being a good neighbor in our community is by supporting the efforts of our local teachers and school staff. We believe that empowerment through education is important for the success of families, neighborhoods, communities, and beyond. While we understand that the needs of schools and their teachers, students, and staff are many and varied, we also trust that doing something is better than doing nothing. Humble as our efforts may be, here is what we are doing:
Love Your Neighbor–Whittier Middle School is our effort to raise money in support of the teachers and staff at Whittier Middle School. These funds have been used to purchase supplies for teachers, treats in the teaching lounge (coffee machine, coffee selections, snacks, goodies, etc.), and to fill a pantry with snacks for teachers to give to hungry students. Additionally, we have joined students and staff at Whittier to help them with some of the projects they have undertaken, and we look to do even more!
The Whittier neighborhood has some of the most significant challenges of any in our city and it is our opinion the staff and teachers of Whittier Middle School should have as much support from the community as we can give them.
While we continue to show love and support to the teachers and staff at Whittier in a variety of ways, one significant effort we are currently undertaking is striving to keep the teachers supplied with snacks for their students. We are accepting donations of individually wrapped packages of snacks such as Takis, Cheez-Its, Goldfish crackers, Squeeze Applesauce, Granola Bars, etc.
