Shawn from Brooklyn, NY

I'm fighting to finish High School. I need help with supplies to finish next summer.

I want to finish by June and move on to college, but it's tough. I feel like I have no support; your donations toward supplies can help change that.


I am a 20 year old male who is struggling to finish High School.

My goals are to finish high school by June 2020. After high school, I want to find meaningful employment while attending community college part-time.

I need some school supplies such as binders, notebooks, pens, and paper to finish school.

Meeting this need will help me because at the moment I am struggling to complete high school. I am becoming less motivated by the minute. I feel like I have no support and am trying to do my best.

I have known Shawn for a little under a year now. It is clear to me that he feels like he does not have a lot of support within his family. Shawn's attendance in school is starting to plummet. I am hoping that posting this need with him will encourage him. Shawn only has eight credits left to finish.
