We Need Your Help!
The Macgregor Alternative Learning Center needs your help. We receive absolutely bare bones funding for our most at-risk kids (15K). We have only a very small budget for classroom materials or supplies (1K - 10 classrooms). We have no budget for sports or fitness or lunchtime activities. We have no budget for technology equipment. We have no funds for textbooks. We have not been able to purchase classroom furniture in at least five years.
We are essentially without the typical budgets that other alternative schools enjoy.
Please contact us if you can help with any of the wish lists.
Your are grateful for your consideration.
