What a great night! Thank you to everyone who came out for the Bunco Tournament! We had a blast and hope you did too!
The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) - Omaha Section has donated time and resources to Jackson Elementary School for the past eleven years. The NCJW Omaha Section chose Jackson Elementary as its school partner 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 17, the first day of school, twenty NCJW-Omaha Section volunteers led by program chair, Harriet Epstein, distributed school supplies to all 270 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 have been bought for those whom the teachers will designate as needing them.
The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms.
