Omaha Public Schools, Omaha Public Schools Foundation and the Omaha Education Association partnered to create a Houston Recovery Fund. The fund will provide financial assistance to the students and staff of the Houston Independent Schools District (HISD). It will provide a lump sum donation, delivered directly to HISD for use at its discretion. Donations will be accepted via the Omaha Public Schools Foundation beginning now through Sept. 30 and can be made by visiting HelpForHISD.
“We want to express our support to our counterparts in HISD, as well as to the families and the community there,” said OPS Board President Lacey Merica.
“Times like this remind us about the importance of coming together and pooling our resources to support one another during times of tragedy and need. We continue to keep the students, staff and families of the Houston School District in our thoughts as well.”
“The tragic events unfolding daily in Houston and surrounding areas remind us of the importance of helping others. Our primary concern is for the students and staff of the largest public school system in Texas. We’re fellow educators helping fellow educators, with one goal in mind - helping students,” said Bridget Donovan, president, Omaha Education Association.
