A US teacher has social media users feeling super touched after heading online to share a snap of the 'Take what you need' station she'd just created for her students. The colourful racks have been placed right in her classroom and feature an assortment of personal hygiene, snack and stationery items that the kids can simply take as they need.
Heading online, the teacher @lisslblair shared a pic of all her good work.
"Take What You Need station for my high school students," she captioned the post.
The station's racks are fully stocked with tissues, unisex deodorants, yummy snacks, lotions and even sanitary towels. The kind-hearted teacher provided these items all out of her own pocket, ensuring her students are well -taken-care-of in and out of the classroom.
