We knew the need was great
But these empty shelves were a surprise. After being open for under a month, the Student Success Store at Columbus Global Academy was completely bare.
The immersive English language learning school hosts immigrant and refugee students from 55 different countries, speaking more than 15 languages. Guidance counselors note that students often walk to school in sandals, without coats, hats, or gloves all winter long.
Help us restock the shelves at Columbus Global Academy by hosting a drive, dropping off donations, shopping our Amazon wish list or making a donation via PayPal.
