The Woolf Pack Fund

Did you know that ONE IN FIVE CHILDREN in Nebraska and western Iowa under the age of 18 IS AT RISK FOR HUNGER?
(Food Bank of the Heartland)

The Woolf Pack Fund, named for its founder, has made its mission to provide supplemental food to the youth in need in our community. Our vision is to help eliminate hunger and close the meal gap.

The Woolf Pack Fund will provide support to students at two Omaha Public Schools: Western Hills Elementary and Benson West Elementary. Based off of 2018 data, 250 out of 331 students and 400 out of 498 students, respectively, qualify for free and reduced lunch. Both schools receive support from the Food Bank for the Heartland’s backpack program but it is not near enough. The need for supplemental food has greatly increased due to COVID.

“Like many North Omaha families, Benson West families were intensely hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many families were forced out of work and unable to provide for their children,” said Megan Seeley, the school social worker. “With the help from the backpack program, this will alleviate some stressors and help to bridge the gap between meals for our students and families.”

The program will run from September through May and is geared to target young children with limited parental supervision at home. Bags will be packed weekly by volunteers and taken to the school for the teachers to place into the student’s backpacks on Friday. The bags will contain 2 shelf stable milks, a fruit cup, a juice box, 2 cereals and 2 entrees.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

The goal of the Woolf Pack Fund is to provide supplemental meals to 50 additional students at each school. In order to complete this goal we are trying to raise $23,500.00. The cost of food and bags to provide supplemental food to 1 student for the entire school year is $235.00.

2021 North High PTSO Fundraiser

Omaha North High Magnet SchoolNORTH HIGH SCHOOL NEEDS YOU!

What a school year!  Omaha North High Magnet School’s PTSO strives to support all our students and staff – and of course, we are having to reimagine how we can best accomplish this.

Here’s a snapshot of the value of North’s PTSO funding:

  • Extra-curricular activities: The PTSO funds items and activities for athletic teams and school clubs based on applications and short presentations from student representatives. For example – new uniforms for the cross-country team – or competition fees for the African American History Challenge Club. The PTSO funds all kinds of things for these groups!
  • Post Prom: North’s PTSO hosts a Post prom for juniors and seniors, providing food, drinks, AND entertainment (including a hypnotist, games, and lots of awesome prizes!)
  • Staff Appreciation:  The PTSO provides a little something for the staff each quarter to show how grateful we are for what they do.
  • Scholarships: The North PTSO awards four college scholarships each May!

Let’s show North’s students and staff how much we appreciate them.

2021 Hearts for Harrison Campaign

OPS Harrison Elementary SchoolShow your Heart for Harrison by making a donation to the Harrison Elementary PTA! Our school boasts an active, engaged PTA membership who works together to create fun and educational opportunities for students, teachers, and families to strengthen our school community.

In 2018, the Harrison Elementary PTA helped to implement an outdoor classroom on the northwest corner of our school building. Because the classroom is in bright sunlight for much of the school day, it is often difficult for teachers to use it safely or comfortably. Through this fundraiser, we hope to install a large sun shade to cover the outdoor classroom space, making it more usable in all weather conditions. As we have seen during Covid, getting kids outside is more important than ever, and this sun shade will help us make that happen at Harrison! 

Your financial support helps our organization thrive and fulfill its purpose of giving our students, teachers, and families a strong sense of community and opportunities for growth. We are so grateful for your donation!

We accept donations throughout the school year.
