Every student needs a desk

 Since the pandemic forced schools to move online, some students have had to learn from the kitchen table, a couch, or even the living room floor. No having a desk makes it harder for them to be organized and focused. That's why Jessica and Al Berrellez, who live in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and have three children, have spent recent weekends delivering desks and chairs to students in Montgomery County who need them.

Al, who works in sales and consulting in the building materials industry, makes some of the desks in his spare time. Friends and other volunteers make or donate the rest. "Every kid deserves to have their own little workstation," says Al. "This was something, to me, that seemed simple enough to do, but that would make a big impact on these children's lives."
