WASHINGTON, Ill. (WMBD) — A future teacher is prioritizing kids and their learning environment as the semester nears its end.

Illinois Central College freshman Katherine Moser is calling on central Illinoisans to help two area schools, Washington Beverly Manor and Marquette Heights Elementary. She says a clean safe educational setting can make a difference in a student’s academic success. The need for Lysol-type wipes, individual headphones, sanitizer, and gloves can help alleviate added stressors.

“When it comes to the students and staff, it’s really important for them to have a clean and safe learning environment and this allows the schools to continue to provide resources to families such as food and technology. The reason why I want to make sure that this is followed through [with] is that no child should have a denied educational opportunity, because it’s important that they’re not held back due to a lack of resources and supplies.”


Washington’s Beverly Manor is accepting donations at Lindy’s Downtown Market until Wednesday, December 16. Contact Principal Corey Sharp via email for donation drop off opportunities after the deadline.

Donations for Marquette Heights Elementary School can be dropped off at Dollar General until mid-January.
