Need Money for School Van

UPDATE! We are so grateful for this amazing community that helped us meet our original goal of $8,500 to buy a used van very quickly! Wow! We are impressed by your generosity and did not anticipate such a fast response. 

We feel humbled by your incredible outpouring of love for our students.  

It is your generosity that has encouraged us to dream bigger and made us feel bold enough to ask for something more.

We would like to raise an additional $7,000 beyond our original goal to buy a newer van.

With $8,500 we could buy a 15-year-old van...which could meet our needs adequately. With $15,500 we could buy an 8-year-old van, which would be more reliable and last much longer.

Please consider helping us meet our new goal of $15,500!

This van will make a big difference in the lives of our students! 

NOTE: See the Channel 6 WOWT article and newscast featuring this story here!


Our current 23-year-old school van has been stolen, vandalized and taken gun fire – but we’ve made it last as long as we could!  

However, the doors no longer open properly, and the engine is failing.  
We need your help to raise $8,500 to buy a reliable, used van!  

This van will be used to transport 7-9 people to school events including…  
- College and job fairs 
- Sports (games and practices)  
- Community outings  
- Volunteer opportunities  
Every school should have a reliable vehicle to transport students to enhance their education!  
Would you consider joining us now and helping students get where they need to go?  
When you support the Omaha Street School, you transform students from feeling trapped and powerless to being free and empowered!   
Give now to make a big impact in the life of an at-risk high school student today!  
P.S. The Omaha Street School receives no federal or state funding because it is faith-based.  Every penny you give is used wisely and stretches far to help students succeed!
