MM Manufacturing Assists Rural Title 1 School
Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended (ESEA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. (Oct 5, 2015)
Early in July, Marianne Bennett, owner of MM Manufacturing aka Marvelous Marianne's received this email from a rural Title 1 school.
"I would like to request a donation of your product for our school's art program. We are a small, rural, Title I school who does not have a large budget for purchasing items from year to year, therefore we rely heavily on donations. Our art room does not have a sink and in order for students to clean up, they must walk to the nearest student bathrooms which are a considerable distance away and make it difficult for me to monitor the classroom and the bathroom simultaneously as the two rooms are out of sight of one another. Since this is a gentle cleaner that can be used without water, it would be a very welcome and appreciated addition to our room."

Marianne said, "All of us, suppliers, retailers and reps donate items but this email for a rural Title 1 school in Rural may be reminder to all of us of the importance of our art giving."
