Hands that Help

By: Ryder and Brandon

There is a crisis happening right now! Unemployment and families in need are all around us. We are trying to help people be aware of these problems by showing how we can all help each other. We want to help people that are in need right now. Unemployment is spreading everywhere, which means families do not have the money they need for a home, food, or clothing. Please take a minute and check out these sites and help in any way you can.

Project Help  works in the best interest of the students of the Apache Junction Unified School District. They do this by providing assistance to students, families, school nurses, teachers and coaches to assist our students on a case-by-case basis.

Here is an exciting story about Eloise Miller, who asked friends and family to donate food and money for her 90th birthday, so she could give it all to the Apache Junction Food Bank.  Mrs. Miller was able to donate over 300 non-perishable food items.

If you are still unsure, please check out The Bureau of Labor Statistics for 2011.  Here you will find all the motivation you will need to help others in need.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and for investigating the sites we discovered. Hopefully, we can all make a difference together. In no time at all, needy families will have jobs, homes, food, and clothing, to enjoy their lives together. You can be the difference!

How are you inspired by Mrs. Miller or programs like Project Help to serve others?

What can you do to make a difference to help someone who is struggling with unemployment or the financial crisis?

    Aloha Ryder and Brandon,
    Thank you for taking the time to write about a problem that is effecting so many people in our world today. We can no longer look away as if it isn’t there.
    What I truly liked about your post is that it is informative in giving statistics but it also gives ideas as far as what we can do to help.
    Once again thanks so much for writing about this important topic that is a part of all of our lives.
    A hui hou,

    Ryder and Brandon,

    I really enjoyed your post and think it is very important to inform people about what is going on in the world around us. I think what Mrs. Miller did was commendable and hope that others like her will reach out this holiday season.
    Excellent Job,

    Mrs. Martinez

    Dear Mrs. Bliss’s class,

    We love your class blog. We love that you are donating to charity. We like to donate to poor people, too. Our math class is doing a project and we are donating things to Project Help. What are you donating? Please tell us when you respond.

    Hi Melissa and Soledad,
    Thank you for commenting on our blog and for donating to Project Help. It is very kind of you to help people in need. Our school is going to donate to Project Help right after Christmas, because that is the time when they are so low on supplies. Our school has decided to have a canned food drive, also. We are very happy that people in need are getting the help to make their life better.

    Can you please let us know how much food you were able to donate to Project Help?
