Who are we and why are we doing this:
The Center for Leadership and Educational Equity (CLEE) has joined forces with STEAM Box to harness our collective resources and varied experiences to support students and educators to return after the devastating hurricane damage to the island. The efforts to re-open schools is daunting, but we know how important it is to provide students a continued sense of normalcy, a solid education and access to their school community. While many resources have been organized to rebuild Puerto Rico, there is still a great need for school supplies and other items to give students access to education.
CLEE is working with the Puerto Rico Department of Education and educators to identify specific needs of schools and classrooms. Steam Box build a way for schools, organizations, and individuals to organize and donate items directly to schools!
Many people have asked us over the last few months how they could help students, educators, and schools in Puerto Rico. Now we have a way! Simply organize your community to raise funds and go to the links below to select a school you want to support and order the specific items they need.
