Kamilah and Samantha volunteer with teenage girls at a group home in LA through an organization called School on Wheels. Unfortunately, these girls have been displaced from their homes for various reasons and reside at this group home temporarily. Some have been victims of abuse and/or neglected. During the day, they attend school but once they return to the group home, their activities are limited. The current television at the group home is very old and doesn't work. The girls are extremely sweet and eager to learn. A television will help the girls access the internet to assist with school projects. The DVD player and karaoke machine will create a communal atmosphere where the girls can spend time together. Please help us to reach our goal!
* For safety reasons, we may not post any pictures of the girls, however, the girls wrote notes explaining why they would like these items.
