Hebrew Preschool Start-Up Fundraiser

As many of you know, I started Kefar Publishing (KP) two years ago to fill a void in Torah-based educational materials. I've published books, posters, and plenty of worksheets, including quizzes and Alef Bet coloring sheets. I'm constantly creating new materials, and I'm ready to use them in a new setting - preschool!

This fall, in Charlotte, North Carolina, I will open GAN MAQOM SHALOM (GMS) - a small, dual-language preschool - under the KP umbrella. GMS will provide a fun, caring, and safe environment for children to learn and grow in, through structured activities and free play. Language and literacy development is central to the curriculum, and children will learn to speak, read, and write in both English and Hebrew!

Of course I'm creating most of the posters and worksheets used in the classroom, but there are plenty of things that the children need outside of that - hence the need for this fundraiser!

The $1000 will be used for the following:

(1) FURNITURE $400: for a table, chairs, toy/supply storage, book shelves, and 2 art easels (from IKEA and Amazon);

(2) HEBREW BOOKS $200: for Hebrew books from IsraelBookShop and MyHebrewBooks (prices range from $8-$20);

(3) EDUCATIONAL TOYS & TOOLS $200: globe, puzzles, blocks, toys for dramatic play, etc (from Dollar Tree, Amazon, and Target);

(4) SCHOOL SUPPLIES/ARTS & CRAFTS MATERIALS $80: markers, colored pencils, paints, glue, pompoms, pipe cleaners, glitter, scissors, etc (from Dollar Tree, Amazon, and Target); and

(5) MISCELLANEOUS BUT NECESSARY ITEMS $120: fire extinguisher (required by state law), first-aid kit, nap mats & bedding, step stool for the bathroom, etc (from Ikea, Amazon, and Target).

Receipts will be maintained for any item purchased, so every penny will be accounted for. THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION! No amount is too small, and every bit is appreciated =.)
