STEM/STEAM Makerspace Donations!

Event Chair: Becky Foutch


help henry ford get our dedicated makerspace up and running!

The MAKERSPACE is officially open and the results are fantastic!  We hope you can stop by!  We have amended our donations list to just a few items that we'd love more of.  Please email with any questions! 

You can see how SIMPLE our materials needs are so get creative! This might be a good time to raid the garage, thrift stores and office supply closets at work -- or even ask your employer to donate!  Amazon has the best prices for most items listed. Cash donations welcome to purchase supplies.

We are also listing volunteer opportunities for Supervising the Drop-in Lunch Club.  No experience necessary - just a fun and quick time to watch the kids do their thing.  Fingerprinting is required!

Thanks for your support!

Show your children that you care about their education by making the time to help their school. We have tasks suited to campus or home, days/evenings/weekends. There are many ways to help and even one hour makes a difference.

Network with other parents by working and having fun alongside them. You just might meet your new best friend, a carpool partner, or the lead on a new job. Join us!

Make a difference fundraising, helping in the classrooms, and engaging the community. Parents like you make these programs possible.

Many hands make light work. – John Heywood
