My Student In Need Begins Its 6th Year of ServiceMy Student in Need, a division of My Neighbor in Need, begins its 6th-year of service, on Tuesday, August 27. “Today we celebrate our 6th year of providing hope to our students in need,” said Dave Snuggs, Founder of My Neighbor in Need. “We stand ready to answer the call for help from any teacher or school administrator in our network of over 160 schools in 31 cities.”
At the start of the 2018/2019 school year, My Student in Need is now available in throughout Montana and in nine cities in Wisconsin. “It is hard to imagine that what started out as an idea written on a dinner napkin in 2013 continues to help thousands of students in need,” Snuggs said.
At the end of the 2016/2017 school year, My Student in Need had completed a total of 2,578 need fulfillments.
The website and system are the creation of Great Falls resident, Dave Snuggs, and through a partnership with numerous school districts, allows for selected School Teacher/Administrators to submit a request for help with a specific need, such as school supplies, clothing, lunch money, etc. for their Students in Need. Need requests are posted live on the website where anyone in the world can review them and offer help to fulfill the request in an anonymous setting. The only information provided to the staff at My Student in Need by the School Administrator is the age, gender, grade, school and the details of the need request.
The original My Student in Need and My Neighbor in Need systems were developed by Tom Penwell of Tom’s Web Designs in 2012. 406 Marketing and Design, designed and manages both www.myneighborineed.org and www.mystudentinneed.org websites and current systems. www.mystudentinneed.org is available for free to any school wishing to help their students.
