August 17, 2016 - NCJW Omaha Section once more Donates School Supplies to Jackson Elementary School

Another school year, and another day for the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) Omaha Section members to provide supplies to all students at Jackson Elementary School. Jackson was chosen in the OPS Adopt-A-School program based on its need for assistance. Throughout its 120-year history, NCJW has demonstrated a profound commitment to improving the quality of life for women, children, and families. While this commitment has taken a variety of forms over the years, central to it is the belief that a democratic society must provide for the needs of those unable to provide for themselves.
On August 13, the first day of school, NCJW Omaha Section volunteers led by program chair, Harriet Epstein, distributed school supplies to all students as part of its mission to help the children at Jackson Elementary School. NCJW Omaha Section buys the supplies requested by the teachers for the students each year. In addition to the supplies provided so far, backpacks are provided for those whom the teachers note as needing them.
