THE STORY:

Meet a hero: Ms. McCullough at Cornerstone’s Lincoln King Academy. She runs the “Parent Room.” She provides clean clothing for students when they need it, she helps out with a little bus fare from time-to-time, she knows which kids are coming to school without a proper coat and no boots in the winter and tries to find appropriate clothing so the child stays warm. She knows which kids will not have meal to eat when they get home and figures out ways to get them some food to take home. She comes in earlier than she should, and stays later than she’s paid. She’s an angel.
She needs boots, coats, socks, underwear, toiletries, sanitary pads, uniforms and bus fare for kids she loves.

Here are the goals of the Parent Room:

1. To provide every child with a clean, crisp uniform free of holes and stains.  Uniforms in schools are supposed to be the great equalizer, but children whose parents cannot afford new uniforms are made fun of because their shoes have holes, their collars are frayed, etc.  Help our students get their minds off their clothes and on learning.

 

2. To help parents help their children.  Ms. McCullough tells the story of a child who wet themselves, and whose parent was in a position where she might lose her job if she left in the middle of a shift. At the very least, the parent would have had to lose pay to help her child.  Ms. McCullough was able to help the student without putting stress on the family or their budget.  Help her continue to do this.

 

3. To assist with small expenses like lost bus fare or forgotten lunch money.  Some students must wake up at 5am and take two transfers on the unreliable Detroit bus system in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in America.  Sometimes, children lose bus fare, and Ms. McCullough pays out of her own pocket.  Help establish a fund so that Ms. McCullough does not have to spend her own money to help students.

 

4. To keep our students warm and dry in the winter.  There are children who walk to school without proper outwear, boots, etc., because their parents cannot afford them.  Help keep our children warm on their trek toward an excellent education.

Pray for the heroes like Ms. McCullough. Pray for the children in Detroit, parents who are doing their best, teachers and principals going the extra mile….
