Your Help Is Needed!

It is times like this, that allows everyone to ban together to impact the lives of those who need it the most. Sadly, within our community the time is now to assist those facing unimaginable living conditions. Educators know first hand that a student can’t reach their true potential when their basic needs have not been met.

OEA is partnering with the Omaha Public Schools Foundation (OPSF) to assist with our students and families that have been impacted by the numerous housing violations in their apartment complex. The living conditions were deemed as “inhumane.”

Approximately 200 of our students and their families need assistance. They are currently being housed in temporary shelters and the families need basic items until they can be relocated to permanent housing.

There are a couple of ways that you can assist…

  1. You can donate to the families via the OPSF website, please click on the link:

  1. Donation of new, unused in-package twin sized sheets, blankets and comforters. You can drop them off at the OEA and we will get them to the families.
  2. Pass the word to others via social media.

Together we will impact MANY, it is time to put our arms around those who need it the most, our students and their families. Let’s show them how much Educators care, not just within the walls of the building, but when they go home.

You are all amazing individuals that do extraordinary work each day that impacts the lives of many! Let’s continue to make a difference.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
