Outstanding Needs of Riverside Educational Center
Item Needs (click need below to see detail)
Large size popcorn machine
We had use of a popcorn machine last year and popped corn three times a week for our students as an afterschool snack. Recently we had to give back the machine and would love to have it replaced. The kids loved the popcorn and we felt good as adults feeding them a healthier type snack. Thanks for your consideration.TI 84 Calculators
We have several students in higher level math classes that could benefit from having a scientific calculator to utilize during our tutoring services. We are looking for two calculators to be donated.Laser Color Printer
Students often have special projects for school that require them to print out pictures, graphs, charts, etc. We are looking for a laser color printer that has affordable replacement cartridges.
